CEP (Certified Equity Professional) Student Texts

This page shows the texts we publish that are assigned by the Certified Equity Professional Institute (CEPI) in its certification program, plus the GPS books we sell on behalf of the CEP. CEP students can order the NCEO texts below at discounted prices usually reserved for NCEO members. You no longer need to use discount codes. To get the discounted prices on NCEO books, simply use the add-to-cart buttons on this page (either the individual buttons or the large buttons immediately below for adding multiple books at once). The shopping cart will display the discounted price and note that a discount has been applied. (The discounts do not apply to GPS books, which are sold to everyone at a flat rate of $12 each.) The GPS books are also available as free downloads directly from the CEPI at this link. Note that you cannot bring digital books of any kind into the CEP exams.

We do not publish or sell Consider Your Options; to buy that, see the publisher's site, which always links to the latest edition on Amazon.

Instead of adding individual books to your shopping cart, you can click the appropriate button below to add all the required texts to your shopping cart at once. If a book is already in your cart, it will not be added twice. You can adjust quantities or delete items once they are in your cart (e.g., if you already have the current edition of a book).
