    I have a pile of various books that i've used for my certs, just wondering what people do with them.

    Is it worth keeping them for reference until they are superceaded and become worthless or sell them while they still have value ?

    If you feel as though they could be useful in the future then keep them for reference material. Else, if you don't think you'll use them then it may be an idea to sell/donate them as WK said.

    I may be interested in them if you wish to PM me once you've made your decision.

    I keep them for reference at work, you never know when you'll need that little bit of info that you just forgot and the internet doesn't work because some company has either cut thru your fibre or your ISP decided to upgrade/change something without informing you :x... Yep, it's happened to us here...

    I'll definetely keep my A+ books and N+ books but am not sure if I will keep the MCDST press books as I haven't gone through them yet so I don't know if they'll be usefull in the future as the other one will.

    It's a good point.

    I still have on my shelf books on Win 95/98, Office 97 and 2000 etc. etc.

    I'm a bit of a hoarder tho' so will probably hang on to them. Looks good on the shelves if nothing else ! :p

    I will keep them all for reference (maybe eventually donate to charity), but will prob loan them to friends if they take my advice and get some certs behind them
