Congratulations on passing Level 1. Now, it is time for Level 2. Similar to the Level 1 guide, the purpose of this book is to prepare those interested in taking the NICET Fire Alarm Systems Level 2 exam. This prep book includes 150 questions referencing NFPA 72 2013, NEC 2011, IBC 2012, OSHA standards, project management guides and technical/theoretical disciplines. Each question is accompanied by the solution or method in finding the answer as well as the standard or section of the code (NFPA, NEC, IBC and OSHA). Each question is a multiple choice (most are 4 choices) similar to the format of the actual NICET exam. I have made these questions tough enough to test your readiness.
