The Kindle version of this book lacks a table of contents. Had I know this ahead of time I never would have purchased it. I thought it would be great to have a copy of the code book on my tablet that comes to work with me everyday so that I could get the big paperback version out of my truck. Unfortunately since there is no table of contents, there is no easy way to look up the specific codes you are looking for. This makes the book useless for anything other than reading front to back which is not how it gets used most times. By the way the 2011 version does include a table of contents

My state adopted the 2014 NEC as of January 1, 2014, so having an up to date code book was a must. A current code book is also now required to attend code seminars for my states mandatory continuing education credit. As is usually the case, there are a good number of changes for this code cycle, including both expanded AFCI and GFCI requirements, so there really is no way you can bid jobs and function effectively as a licensed electrician or electrical contractor without having a current NEC code book available for reference. It seems that prices for this book are exceptionally inflated from many sellers online and at the time I purchased it, the price here on was the best anywhere, so I was glad to find it at a reasonable price.
This has all the vital info but lacks the helpful diagrams. I would suggest spending a little more to get the nicer version.
This is s typical gouging the customer.The NEC is not as valuable in this form as its something that requires bouncing back and forth between sections by design.The kindle version should be much cheaper as its not as valuable.Its much harder to bounce back and forth between sections on the kindle.The Barnes and Noble nook version is 9,99 what a difference
This National Electrical Code (NEC) book was needed for both school and work. I have used it endlessly and it stays in great shape. I ordered the corresponding organization tabs and those were also very helpful! I believe it is a law that all electricians should keep a current code book on their vans. I keep it with me and use it frequently. They make a new one every 3 years so I will be ordering again soon! This will last you all 3 years because it is well made.It also works great with the corresponding color coded tabs. They will save you a lot of time and make it easier to find answers. The layout and the print is very easy to read and comprehend. It is easy to find your codes and solve a problem. I used this to take my two year electrician’s test and I passed with flying colors. The code book was necessary, but then combined with the color coded tabs, it made going through and finding the answers a breeze! I finished with time to spare. My co-workers have borrowed it as well and they really like how it’s laid out with the tabs. It just makes things much faster. If you get this book, definitely order the color tabs to go with, you won’t regret it. I don’t know what else to say, but for all you electricians, this is the code book you need to have for school and for work.
What can you say about the NEC? It's a pain to use the index because the editors never call it anything that you would call it, and the codes are always referencing other codes, so you have to learn, after many years of practice, what to ignore and what not to.It's a compilation that they have tried, with only limited success, to put into any order. It's the "Bane and the Bible" of every good electrician.
What can I say about the NEC? It is written in "legalese", and in order to fully understand it, one needs a guide book that explains the meaning and intent of each chapter. I also purchased colored tabs to mark all the chapters and relevant tables.
I always buy the latest NEC manual every three years for my profession. This time, I purchased the Kindle edition. I can access the NEC from a smart phone or computer when I need to look up something. Now I don't have to keep the printed copy with me all the time.It's a trade-off: It's easier to look up something in the printed version. But it's easier to "carry" it with you in your smart phone.The Kindle edition was the same price as the print edition. So no cost saving either way.
