Must have formulas for your electrical exam

Remember that the electrical exam is timed.  The NEC book is quite large and is missing page numbers in the index portion.  These 3 tips come in handy to combat those issues. 

All of the students that attend the Texas Live Seminars are instructed to apply these tips.  Every one of our guys swear by these tips!

Here are the top 3 tips for highlighting

  1. Add page numbers and highlight keywords in the index of the electrical code book. If you take a look now, you will see that the page numbers are not included!

  1. Highlight the article and sections that belong to the tables you highlight. Remember each table has a corresponding article that explains how to use the table and includes other notes and sometimes exceptions.

  1. Use several different highlight colors to differentiate from sections, articles, exceptions, and keywords.
