2020 CEPI texts

The NCEO publishes almost all of the texts by the Certified Equity Professional Institute (CEPI) in its industry-standard certification programs. CEP students no longer have to buy books from us; the CEPI licenses the books from us and provides free digital access to you after you register and pay for the exam. Holders of CEPI certifications also receive digital access from the CEPI. However, we sell print versions to those who like to use a printed reference. (We do not sell Consider Your Options because we do not publish it; you can buy it on Amazon, etc.)

Don't forget to order the CEPI Exam Prep Course, which is an invaluable study tool for anyone preparing for the exam. Registration for the fall 2021 course is now open.

Book Links and Discount Code for Students Buying Print Copies

Remember, the CEPI will give you free access to digital copies. CEP print book purchases are not refundable. If you are a CEPI student but are not an NCEO member (most candidates are not), you can use the coupon code CEPIstudent in checkout to discount the books to the same prices that NCEO members get.
