    Now that you are certified and do not use it anymore i would be interested as some of these prices are just way above my means. I currently only have the AIO but i would like some other material as well to use to gain knowledge. I am on a very limited budget at the moment and cant afford alot.

    lmao. And i am not laughing out of disrespect but my library does not even have any current books on anything and i dont think the EULA will apply to the library lending out training software from companies like transcender.

    That is why i came here to ask as most of you may already be certified and no longer have a need for these items.

    I am not selling my AIO book because its too valuable, have a look on Amazon you can get it quite cheap on there.

    Already have my AIO, been through it three times now, and am looking for other material now. Amazon is good but never bothered to check to see if they also sell software.

    Most training software I have ever come across CBT style stuff and also exam sim products do not have transferable licenses. So if someone is selling them second hand, then effectively they are breaking copyright law.

    Modey's right. Every legitimate practice exam and computer-based training product is sold as a non-transferrable single-user license to use the software. Only the person who bought the product can use the product... and they can't legally sell it, rent it, lease it, transfer it, let their buddy use it, or even give it away for free.

    Bound books are different - you CAN typically resell those. That said, e-books do come with restrictions on transfer, since it's easy to sell the electronic version (multiple times!) and still keep a version for yourself... thus, it's not legal to do so.

    I understand you're on a limited budget... but good training products are worth the expense. Consider it an investment in your career... which will enable you to MAKE money.
