This book is not unlike those you might find for the SAT or LSAT guides, but is a bit less expansive as the material is not as broad-based. You will need to practice, practice, practice until you are comfortable with the examination process itself and have an idea as to what will be expected of you. The practice exams can also be found on a CD for those who are more comfortable working on a computer.
Remember, this is not a study guide. There are an assortment of texts that can be purchased to work with when you need to learn about the National Electrical Code (NEC) to pass your test during or after your apprenticeship. In this book you will learn how to prepare for your examination or quizzes, how to study, what to study, you'll learn some helpful hints, basic references, useful formulas (how to find amps, kilowatts, horsepower, etc.), and you'll be able to look at a chart that shows state-by-state licensing requirements for electrical contractors. There are practice exams for maintenance, residential, journeyman, master, residential, and sign electricians for a total of twenty-three exams.Read more ›
The first thing this book tells you is it is not a study guide and it is not there to teach a novice or beginner the basics. The exam guide is just that - a guide for the professionals in the field with extensive knowledge who are taking the exam to be licensed.
In the exam preparation department I was really impressed with the strategies, questions, and explanations. You can read and try to answer questions as a novice and certainly pick up points and information, but this really isn't the purpose of the book. It is really geared towards presenting questions as they are in the exam and showing those who are taking the test how even one word off the answer could be wrong and the things to look for while testing.
The majority of the book is filled with practice exams and page after page of questions one would find on the real test. Being an electrician by trade and then using a study guide and finally using this book as a primer for the test questions and what to expect would be excellent preparation for passing the exam.
Update 4/4/12: I just took the California exam and a heads up to anybody that takes it, the California test seems to have around a third of the test strictly on the chapter 5 thru 9 which this book doesn't really get that much into. I also found out that California doesn't allow bookmarks, notes or highlighting.

How to Use the Book
There are very practical well laid out ideas on getting the most from this book. For instance, there are sample questions to give you an idea on what questions will be like BEFORE taking the review exams.
There are suggestions for answering every question in your book and highlighting in your NEC for future reference. It also tells you to answer questions you DO know first and then check the answers you don't for future study and reference.
It is also recommended that only one practice exam be taken at any given time period, with lapses in between to avoid study fatigue.Read more ›
