    That is one advantage of taking a local test prep course. If you want to learn on your own then I would highly recommend Mike's stuff. I used several of his resources when taking the inspector exams a few years ago.

    Thank you. I am looking into local prep classes for once I get my approval. Until then I'm gonna keep researching online. Also I know I need the nec 2014, but do you have a link to where I can get the fire alarm and business and law books to study from? I had also seen The ultimate 2014 nec tagged and highlighted. That one worth it?Thanks

    Does anyone have a link to where I can get all the study material for the nj exam? I found the reference books on their site but it wont bring me to the books. Or at least pics of the books so I can find them. I am having a hard time finding the proper fire book. Keeps showing me 2016 but the site says 2010. Thanks.

    NJ is under the 2014 NEC for at least the next 18 months so you need to study the 2014. For the most part NJ has very few amendments so the test should be based on the complete NEC. One of our members here Rick Napier is an instructor. I have taken one of his State CEU classes and found him to be very knowledgeable. I'm not sure if he does test prep but you can PM him and ask.

    Where in NJ are you located?

    You can check out BobFrangipane.com if you're willing to travel the Lyndhurst, NJ for test prep seminars. My brother-in-law took his prep class a few years ago and passed on the first try.

    I think I had spoken to a partner of his that also does the class. That sounds great I would love to pass first time around. Just gotta put in the work. Thanks .

    It is New Jersey, won't a coupla C-notes to a guy named Guido or Paoli take care of any problems.
