I went with my college books instead of popular books recommended here because I am most familiar with those books and they are the books that I learnt stuff from. However you can always read books like Wildi, Grainger. My favorite book from college was B.L Theraja (electrical machines). This book also talks about transformers too. You can find pdf online however I have hard copy. I again stress the fact that if you still have your college text books read from that instead of buying a new one.

Print on two sides and two pages per sheet. That way you save paper and you don’t have to carry huge binders. I seriously started studying from August. I completed major topics before the test masters classes started. I just skimmed through NCEES problems but didn’t solve any problems until the start of test masters class. · Very very important.

They did ask lot of protection questions. So go through a good book. · I did print all these topics from online sources: Batteries, parallel operation of alternators, Introduction to PLCs, Energy cost calculations, NEC mike holts index · If you can I would recommend test masters classes. Also I am aware they don’t give these classes everywhere however I recommend you take some sort of class if possible. After I go home tonight, I will add more points to this from my notes.
