There are a variety of ones as pdf on the web, as the NEC in various versions has been adopted as the local code. California Title 24 is an older version of the NEC..

Unless you just want to look up a section or two, where the pdfs work fine, if you want to *use* the code, I'd recommend getting the version with all the commentary and explanations. $150 ish for the latest one.

You can probably find one that is 1 or 2 revs out of date (every 3 years)..not a huge amount changes.

Recently, there's been lots of changes in things like solar panels. Grounding/bonding is pretty much the same for the last 10-15 years.
Three phase neutrals had a big change about 20 years ago.

Obviously, if you're in the business as an electrician or Engineer, you need the latest one.
