Oops, title of the post is suppose to be 'Parts Board' not panel.

You guys helped me out when I asked for a good place to study for the journeyman test.
So I thought I would push my luck and ask if someone knew of a good way to study for the 'parts board' on the J test?
What the parts board section of the test is, is simply they lay out 25 parts, and you have to identify them.
For example they will lay out a piece of 14-2, and its not romex, its '14 awg, 2 conductor non-metalic sheathing' or something like that. And the same thing for tomacs, flex connectors, madison straps, ect..
So does anyone know a good way to study for this? The only thing I can think of is going to Home DEpot w/ my notebook and writing the correct names down. .. Maybe a supply house would have a parts book I could get?
Thanks guys.

Take a look around here for awhile;

A parts Catalog would be a good idea too.
