    Hey Veritas I'm net at this so would these be good to also study from if you are going for a certification? I'm guessing yes but just wanted to see what you had to say about it.

    Certainly not as a primary source. Good for a review? Yes.

    This is awesome! It reminded me to read all the ones I bought last time they did this*

    Leury, they're good guides; absolutely worth a dollar. They're not as good of a value at full-price since you can usually buy a full book for the same price.

    That's what I though. Sounds good , guess I'll buy the ones that I am working on. Should be good to add a long with the books and all other sources like you guys stated.

    I've seen these offers a handful of other times. Decided to pickup a bunch of them this time around. Some coincide with my study plans and some fit well with some classes I'll be taking soon too. A good chunk of them are just in case I get to it purchases.

    Can't go wrong for the price though!

    I bought a few of them last time, and have to say that its not bad if you don't know the topic at all and need a starting point. Do not rely on them purely.

    PS ; Also be ready when their sales teams start making calls like:

    PrepLogig " Hey dude how are you? How is your exams going?
    You: ' " Hmm, who the heck are you?"
    PrepLogic " Its me, Brian/Tim/Mario was calling to see how is it going for you, preplogic"
    You " I am all right thank you, but please do not call me again i am not interested in any thing "
    Preplogic " Listen, we can help you here, belive me we can, we....."


    and same thing 2 weeks later, then 1 month later , to the point where I just have to hang up the phone as soon as hear " Hey dude how are you"

    Caller ID, and the ban stick I have VoIP so their number quickly gets added to the list.

    I had the same thought, so I took a look at the previews. Based on the topic numbering and names, it looks like the LPI guides were written for the previous revision of the exams.

    Right on.
    I also use my Google Voice number for just such occasions. It's nice when you don't have to give away your primary cell number just to get these kind of offers. It sort of makes it no risk

    guess I am out of two dollars lol. For me the guides will allow me to sneak in some study at work.

    Is there any reason these guides wouldn't still help, maybe build a foundation for the new tests? That has been my case with the Security+ at least.

    I still plan on using it though since it is a foundation.

    I imagine they're still handy for that purpose. Just didn't want you to depend on that as your primary source, and potentially find yourself out a lot more than $2.

    Might as well pick a couple up. Got CCNA and CEH. CCNA is pretty detailed, should be a great review for my studies. In addition to the Sybex, hands on and practice tests.

    Can't beat the price.... Well, unless they were free!
    A few certs here and there and everywhere...

    I picked up a couple.

    Im still contemplating taking a stab at 70-624 with that 2 for 1 coupon thing so I got the guide for that, Sharepoint and Security+.

    I find it funny that they have a Server+ 2009 guide, considering that exam isnt out yet. They cant even get the beta finished in under a year.

    Yeah, I thought that was interesting. I'm sitting on a Server+ voucher that Vue sent me after a test scheduling mishap with the beta, so I went ahead, and picked up the guide.
