This is what I found online.

If you are charged with a criminal offense in New Jersey you will often hear the following terms, which are an important part of any consultation with any criminal defense lawyer:

Flat parole eligibility date (PED)—the eligibility term (1/3 of the maximum, the mandatory minimum, or 25 years in the case of a life sentence) which is added to the effective date of sentence less any jail credits awarded pursuant to Rule 3:21-8.
Book parole eligibility—the flat PED minus any commutation credits pursuant to NJSA 30:4-140.
Actual PED—actual parole eligibility date is the Book PED minus credits earned for work and other institutional programs (minimum custody) pursuant to NJSA 30:4-92.
