3 Tips for Highlighting your NEC Book for the Electrical Exam

Electricians preparing for the electrical exam have a lot on their minds.  To simplify a portion of your exam taking anxieties we have listed 3 tips for highlighting your electrical code book.  We have written longer blogs on highlighting your electrical code book for the electrical exam, but here are the top 3 tips.


  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.
