Mike Holt's NEC Course Volume 1, based on the 2011 NEC, Articles 90 through 460.
Practice Questions: 426.
This course covers:
Article 90. Know the purpose and scope of the NEC, and understand how it’s arranged so you can quickly find what you need.
Chapter 1. Become familiar with the general requirements that apply to all installations. You’ll understand NEC terminology, which wiring methods are suitable, and the truth about space requirements (different from what most people think).
Chapter 2. Know the requirements for neutrals, branch circuits, feeders, outside wiring, and services. You’ll gain competence and confidence in sizing and applying circuit protection. You’ll also understand how grounding and bonding differ, and how to apply the concepts properly in the real world.
Chapter 3. Don’t run afoul of the requirements for conductors, enclosures, fittings, cable assemblies and raceways. Do you know how the rules for EMT differ from those for RMC? What about armored cable? Which conductor is right for the job?
Chapter 4. Cords, switches, receptacles, panelboards, and lighting are just some of the Chapter 4 topics you must understand to avoid code violations. Don’t let Article 430—the largest of the NEC Articles—be a “motor mystery” to you. And don’t let the rules for generators, transformers, or capacitors continue to confuse you.
Mike Holt's NEC Course Volume 2, based on the 2011 NEC, Articles 500 through Annex C.
Practice Questions: 888.
This course covers:
Chapter 5. Special Occupancies. This includes hazardous locations (Class I, Class II, Class III, Zone 1, and Zone 2), Fuel facilities, Storage facilities, Health care facilities, and Assembly occupancies.
Chapter 6. Special Equipment. This includes Electric signs, cranes, elevators, electric vehicles, heating equipment, and industrial machinery.
Chapter 7. Special Conditions. This includes Emergency systems, Legally required standby systems, Optional standby systems, and Critical operations power systems.
Chapter 8. Communications Systems. This includes radio, television, CATV, and broadband.
Annex A, B, and C. If you understand these, you can more easily and accurately apply Chapter 3 wiring methods. These three annexes hold a wealth of information. It just needs Mike's magic touch for better explanation.
Mike Holt's NEC Exam Practice Questions Textbook, with 12 review quizzes of 100 questions each
The NEC Exam Practice Questions Book contains 2,400 questions from the National Electrical Code. There are 10 review quizzes of 100 questions each that are in code order and take you step-by-step through each of the 9 chapters of the National Electrical Code. The 10 practice quizzes of 50 questions each follow the NEC Review quizzes, but are presented in random order and contain questions different from those in the review quizzes.
In addition, this book contains 7 final quizzes that cover all 9 chapters of the National Electrical Code. The questions in these quizzes do not follow the chapters of the Code book as the other quizzes do. They are also organized in a random manner, and you might find them harder to answer (which is a good thing).
Scores for the first few final quizzes might be somewhat lower than you would like to see. But as you go through this book and take the review and practice quizzes, you’ll learn a great deal and gain a better understanding of the material. This improved knowledge and understanding will help you improve on the quizzes as you go. And that means you improve your final score on your electrical exam as well.
