These links are provided to help you in obtaining your Certifications. Please note that some may change from time to time. Some of these are free and/or may offer a paid version as well as downloadable material.

Pro Tip: Some offer downloads that are free or paid for. Please do not share the paid for items. Why might you ask? Digital downloads usually embed the purchaser’s information. If you share it with someone, you are 1. Stealing; 2. Sharing your information which can be traced back to you. Let’s support the folks that help us pass our Exams.
