In 1999, two years after launching my still-successful Exam Cram book series, I co-created a general book to help IT and other professionals pursue and achieve certification. The name of that book was IT Certification Success and it went through five editions between that year and 2003 when the final print edition was finished.
How many "big certs" from this cover have faded into obscurity?
Pearson will still quite happily sell you an Adobe Reader Version of the most recent edition of the IT Certification Success Exam Cram, but there's no real reason for you to plunk down $13 or so to make it your own. "Why not?" you ask. Here are my top three reasons for suggesting otherwise, in reverse priority order:
3. Because the information in that tome is now a decade old, and out of date.
2. Because the programs and subject matters of interest to IT professionals are waaaaaaay different now than they were in 2003.
1. Because we've recreated that book in electronic form in a series of 21 articles right here on this very Website, and update them regularly, so you can grab them right now, for free!
Here's the directory from the home page for "Ed Tittel's IT Certification Success" right here at PearsonITCertification.com, with links for you to use to grab the articles already at your disposal. Who needs a book (printed or electronic) when you can get all the content -- and more -- in a curated, up-to-date form for free? Not you, I bet!
