I already knew electrical theory and thought I knew the NEC. I spent hours taking the journeyman and master electrician practice tests from this book and it helped me learn how to look up code quickly. The real test, just like the DeWalt tests, had some complex questions where I first had to look up FLA of a motor then determine wire size for specific conditions. There were questions using acronyms and trade terms that are not in the code book. There were also voltage drop and power formula questions.
While this is not a textbook, each question comes with an answer and an explanation of the rationale behind the answer. All calculations are shown and references to the code are given.
Earlier versions of this book came with a CD. This one came with a one-user login to on-line practice exams which are the same as the book, including answers and explanations.
I highly recommend using this guide to prepare for the test.
