Default Who has the best price on codebooks?

I need a new 2008 Codebook. Amazon.com has them for about $60. Just wondering if anyone knows of a better price.

I have found Amazon or the supply house. Forget a book store, especially a big chain.

I seen a deal on the internet for a tabbed 2008 NEC and Tom Henry's keyword index. Anybody ever use the keyword index? Is it worth getting? I believe it was something like $125.

For me the keyword was worth it. I can't believe I didn't get it until a year ago. On top of saving time with that, then it's prehighlighted. I've made that money up times 50 probably on the job site.

Thumbs up

I quit getting the KWI when the NEC on CD came out. Now, I can look up any word or phrase, not just what's on the list.

I got the key word index and I think it is well worth the money. I think it cost $18 by it self.

I use the keyword index quite a bit.
You can download the codebook for free here and use the pdf search function to find certain words

I have the 2008 NEC in PDF form with random words highlighted. I can't figure out any rhyme or reason for the highlighted words since they are so random.
