Book Links and Discount Code for Students Buying Print Copies

2023 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 (We do not sell Consider Your Options because we do not publish it; you can buy it on Amazon, etc.)

If you are a CEPI student but are not an NCEO member, use the coupon code CEPIstudent in checkout to discount the books to NCEO member prices.
