What is the difference of the 1997 Universal Building Code book and the 2003 International Building Code book and the International Residential Code 2003: For One-And Two-Family Dwellings? I believe that our county uses the UBC for permiting and our city uses the IRC for permiting and licensing. I'm confused. :(

Does anyone recommend anything in regard to code books? Just buy the code book and study it? I have seen other books such as the Building Codes Illustrated: A Guide to Understanding the International Building Code, what do you recommend? Code books for dummies? :D

I also see the Building Construction Illustrated by Ching highly recommended, any thoughts?
