This book is not for the licensing exam. A 2012 IRC with tabs is available for the licensing exam.
This comprehensive code compiles all building, plumbing, mechanical, fuel gas and electrical requirements for one- and two-family dwellings in one convenient code. The regulations cover dwellings and townhouses up to three stories. ICC has also prepared Earthquake Spectral Response Acceleration Maps in conjunction with the U.S. Geological Survey, Building Seismic Safety Council, Federal Emergency Management Agency, and E.V. Leyendecker, A.D. Frankel, and K.S. Rukstales of the U.S. Geological Survey that will assist you with the Building and Residential Codes.
