I just took the test November. Scored 92%.
I used the Mike Holt exam preperation book, it was very good explains electrical theory, electricians math (how to work with percentages,decimals,etc) has a lot of practice test over theory. it also tests on nec code i.e read code section and take test with the code book.

Good luck on your exam.

exactly what you need to pass the test- speed in looking up question in code book. Mine was based on the 1999 code (open-book) so i studied with that edition mainly.

You got the right idea.Work on looking up questions fast,because the test is 100 questions .Most of them straight out of the NEC,with very few calculations.
