Welcome to the Electrical Exam Academy.

I'm Jim Smith.

I help people pass their NEC® Exam. 

I started this site in 2011. After studying  results from 1256 Electrical Exams taken on this site and talking with students from all over the country for more than 4 years. I have discovered that the reason most people finally pass is...


These proven steps increase speed.


Let’s Get Started!

  • First thing to do----Study "with your code book" the Electrical Exam Study Guide - This is where you find the prep material that makes up 70% of the Master, Journeyman, RW, and Contractor electrical exams. I know your excited but really slow your mind down here and study this free exam prep carefully.

  • Second thing to do----Learn Lesson 1 in the Electrical Exam Academy

  • Third thing to do----Study these practice exams option #1 or option #2. Option #1 is 25 Free electrical test questions. Take it slow and have plenty of time in a quite setting. The questions are delivered one at a time (like Pearson Vue and PSI). Take your time and get used to computer testing. Find each keyword in the NEC index, before you answer.

  •  Fourth thing to do---- Study the feedback on each answer when you finish the practice exams. Whether you get the answer right or wrong you can see how I use the NEC book and get to the answer. Go through the questions you missed and study the keywords. Find the keywords in the index that lead to the article. This is how it's done.

  • Fifth thing to do---- E-mail me so we can set up a phone call and go over your Electrical Exam. Jim@NECtesting.com. I have a 100% PASS rate when someone has reached out to me. Read the Testimonials. "It's free (for now") what have you got to lose".

  • Sixth thing to do---- Get your exam date. Really! Sometimes this is the hardest step. Call your State Electrical Board.

  • Seventh thing to do---- Send me a copy of your Electrical Exam Bulletin or failed test results. This lets me know you’re serious and lets you know what to study and what Reference Material you can use on your exam. Take a picture of it and e-mail it to me.

If you have any questions at any time my personal e-mail is Jim@NECtesting.com


If you want to go over your exam this is what I need. Here is a recent example of an Electrical Exam Bulletin and supporting reference material:



Coming soon.

Hey It's Jim, I have invented a tool that I use every day. It helps you pull wire. I call it the "apprentice". It's like having another set of hands.

The real patent pending name is "Wire Pull Bracket". As soon as I get some time I will put the pictures and videos on the sight. 

Stay tuned...
