    Default amazon for older certs

    one of the things about some of the older certs is that some of the study material is a lot cheaper i just got a study guide on amazon for 70-290 for around 7.00 including postage

    Books really aren't that expensive as long as you steer clear of the books that are intended to be used in a classroom. If the publisher is Mcgraw or Pearson, you are for sure going to pay over $100. If not, $30-$40 is usually the most you will see.

    And of course, $7 is better than that. Many people are unloading their old books more for freeing up space for the new books but wouldn't mind a few bucks.

    I keep all of mine, but I offer them out to friends to borrow. Nobody has ever taken me up on it yet. Several have expressed interest though.

    I don't sell any of my books.. The books will serve as a nice reference in my IT career.

    Your friends, like mine, are clearly not cool enough.

    I plan on keeping all of mine, putting them on a bookshelf in my home office. Assuming I can clean up this trainwreck of a room I call a computer room into an office

    I donate the ones I know I'm completely finished with to the company library. I usually find more concise locations for the information throughout my studies (Technet, Cisco docs, etc.), and I use that going forward. I'll undoubtedly need to reference something, but I don't really need to be "taught" again.

    I just give away the ones I don't need anymore. The last bunch went to a Taxi driver who mentioned he wanted to break into Cisco work.
