Hey guys, I am going to take my "Master Electrician State License" and the main book is of course the NEC. I know the NEC well from the PE but I do need to learn it at even a deeper level. I have the CI 300 NEC problems book, does anyone else have any references you would recommend?

I know that Engineering Pro Guides has a practice exam set specifically for code questions. It's not the Final Exam or Full Exam but is the References Exam. You can get that if you don't have it yet. It has NEC questions that cover various topics beyond the typical questions from NEC sections 210, 220, 230, 240, 250, 310, 430, and Chapter 9.

Maybe Ray Holder's Journeyman and/or Master electrician study guides. I think he has a calculation book too.

I used this for a little preparation for the PE exam, but I found it wasn't the most helpful for the topics typically covered on the PE exam. But I would reccomend for electricians as it has a lot of resources and practice material for sizing wires, conduit, boxes, residential service calulations, etc.
