    My 2011 NEC arrived monday by mail from the IAEI(free to all IAEI members), it has the yellow sticker for the free PFD file. I did download it, seems to work OK but I could not cut and paste, maybe I'm not doing that function correctly.
    Be open minded but not so open minded that your brains fall out.

      Most of us actually aren't in NY. Your state has a reputation for being slow to adopt new codes, it's not that way in much of the country. Here in Colorado, I will be tested on the 2011 code in July of 2011.

        Especially since I bought the hard copy once, and downloaded the PDF once.

          Is there a reason for having both Reader and Acrobat on your system?

          I uninstalled Reader before installing Acrobat on my system.

              Is it just the softcovers that come with the Magic Yellow Stickers, or do the wirebound and looseleaf have them too?

It's all well and good to become familiar with the changes but where has it been adopted into use? I think most have at least until 2014 to get a copy and read through it. Even then there will be a lot of jurisdictions one or two cycles behind and learning anything other than what you are using can lead to confusion. I wouldn't even bother with the '11 unless I knew it was going to be adopted soon where I'm working.

                        I got my copies in the mail several weeks ago, I'll have to check for the PDF.

                        Thanks for the heads up!

                          I downloaded my version from publicresource.org. Any document that is law has to be available to the public. Will wait for the 2011 version to be put on the website.

                                Why is the NEC Law? Even the NFPA says the document is "purely advisory". I doubt the NFPA would be required to make any version of the NEC free. Your state will adopt a uniformed statewide building code that makes reference to the ICC codes as well as the NEC but that in itself does not make it law. The USBC is law and what if references are compulsory documents to support it but unless your state does something different than my state (Virginia) does the NEC is not a law.

                                You might find illegal copies on the web but not a legit copy unless it is part of an NFPA promotion for buying another book as i did when I got my 2011 electronic version.
