Canadian Electrical Code (CEC)
2015
______________________________________

These are only the sections of code. There are no complete rules here in total. This is only a general reference section.
A word of advice is to get used to these sections. You may as well marry the book because you'll be spending a huge amount of time in it. Some people highlight their code book, some don't. Just keep in mind for the final IP you will have an unmarked book - and for every exam you take from now until that time.
Here is an overview of some products that might help you...

The CEC Handbook - This interprets the code. Gives you reasons why it is a code. This is a wonderful resource if you think the CEC is hard to understand.

The Interactive Standard - This is a combination of a digital CEC code book, the Handbook, and calculators for electrical work.

The ESAT - is a program that gets you used to taking IP questions. There are 1000 questions that are thrown at you in a random manner. This is the 2012. The 2015 esat hasn't been released as of the upload of this page November 2015.
