Have NFPA 70, the 2011 National Electrical Code, at your fingertip. Softbound version.
Why You Need It
If you're doing electrical work, you need your own copy of the NEC. Why:
Drawings can easily contain code violations. You need to check the drawings before doing the work. That protects your company and it protects you.
When a question of "Can we do it this way?" arises, you'll be able to find the answer yourself.
If a question arises about something you did, you can look up the Code requirement rather than taking someone else's word for it.
And that copy needs to be current. Why:
The NEC is revised every three years. This is the Code cycle. Things change.
You may miss a requirement, and thus commit a violation.
You may do something in a more time-consuming or costly way than the NEC actually requires.
Spiral or Softbound?
Some people have both. Each has its advantages.
The spiral coil allows you to conveniently study by placing the book folded on your desk. It lies flat. You can even put it on a hook in your truck.
The binding gives the book a nice, rigid spine so you can stand it up on a bookshelf. It also fits into a briefcase or carrybag without snagging.
New and Improved
New Article 694 has first-time requirements for small wind electric systems.
Revised Article 625 includes updates on safe battery charging for plug-in hybrid vehicles that reduce the risk of explosion.
Revised Article 705 covers interconnecting generators, windmills, and solar and fuel cells with other power supplies.
New Article 840 addresses the increased demand for broadband communications systems with requirements for wireless, routers, and wireless disconnects.
The 2011 Revision includes more safety requirements:
Means to reduce incident energy (240.87).
Labeling at subpanels to identify feeder supply source (408.4(B)).
Disconnecting means for transformers (450.14).
The NEC is divided into nine Chapters. The first four apply to all electrical installation. The last five apply to special cases. There, that makes it easier to work with already!
