    Best references for studying the NEC as a single unit?

    Happy to help! 😁 I think there are 2020 NEC versions out now too. I've looked through the journeyman book, and had several electrician trainees say it was helpful on exams.

    NCEES Released Power PE CBT Pass Rates

    This is so true! And it was definitely still a hard test despite nearly a year of preparation. I saw a post saying that no spots were available until February for the exam. So i doubt there were many people signing up to "wing" the exam in December and January. So results right now are...

    PE Power New CBT Exam

    My experience seemed much the same as @DilutedAr18 and @DuranDuran - except my exam room was hot, and there was a varying amount of construction sounds so I used the provided noise cancelling headphones. I do wish I had been able to have a drink or chew some gum in the test room.  I super...
