The NCEO publishes almost all of the texts assigned by the Certified Equity Professional Institute (CEPI) in its industry-standard certification program. CEP students, who usually are not NCEO members, can order these books at the NCEO member prices. All of the required books are 2019 versions, as pictured above. Please do not buy or otherwise use the old editions, which are now out of date. Note: We do not publish or sell Consider Your Options; you can buy that on Amazon (see the CEPI for the required edition).
How to Order the Books at Discounted Prices If You Are Not a Member
To order at the discounted prices, simply add the books to your cart using the links below. Then enter the code CEPIstudent in the "Coupon Code" field at the bottom of the first checkout screen and click the "Add coupon" button. (This code is not case-sensitive.) You will see a confirmation that the code has been applied, and the cart will now show the discounted amounts. If you are an NCEO member, then when you are logged in you will automatically receive the discounted price (and you can use the discount code anyway if you aren't sure). Below are links to each book's page, where you can add it to your cart:

CEPI Exam Discount for NCEO Members
The NCEO is on the CEPI Advisory Board, and the CEPI extends a discount to NCEO members (see below for eligibility). This opportunity saves you $200 on new Level 1 exam registration fees (normally $1,495 for U.S. registrations, $1,695 for non-U.S.). To take advantage of this offer, contact the CEPI at 408-554-2187.
Note: Eligible registrations include new Level 1 registrations for individuals who are involved in administering or managing their own company's equity programs. This cannot be combined with any other discounts. Deferrals and re-tests are not eligible for a discount. Individuals already registered are not eligible for a retroactive discount. Candidates from service providers do not qualify. Questions regarding eligibility can be directed to the CEPI at 408-554-2187.
