    Find discussions of changes 2008 to 2011 and 2011 to 2014 and work them backward?

    I think you'll be ok. There are changes every cycle but not so very drastic that it would cost you an exam.

    Thank you, that eases my mind a bit. I am now studying the exam prep book. Thank you for your reply.

    As was said, you probably are OK as far as the exam is concerned.

    Since the NEC tends to get stricter as time goes by, the more likely problem is that you will quote jobs higher than you should (losing business to lower priced competitors) because you now think you have to do additional work that you don't really have to do.

    Usually you will have access to the NEC so we are not expected to know the answers but rather we should know where to find the answers. I agree with the others - don't sweat it
    They say I shot a man named Gray and took his wife to Italy
    She inherited a million bucks and when she died it came to me
    I can't help it if I'm lucky
