The biggest benefit of purchasing books through Amazon is the cost savings. Amazon is able to offer course books at greater discounts than almost anyone else. They also provide free shipping on orders over $25 (in most cases). AND they are offering more and more books as kindle edition, meaning you can have instant access to the book to read on your computer or other reader (iPad, Kindle, Android, etc.).
Here’s an example:
We are offering the ‘test only’ for a book titled Autism Spectrum Disorders in Infants and Toddlers on closeout for $40. Completion of the book and test will earn you 7 hours of continuing education credit.
So you can purchase the ‘test only’ from us for $40. Then head over to Amazon to download the e-book for $14.30. You’ll have instant access to both the CE ‘test only’ and the book.
Best of all, your total cost for 7-hours of CE credit is only $54.30!
(This is a savings $54.70 from when we used to provide the book and test together.)

Q: When must I have the required number of continuing competency hours completed in order to renew my license? A: The requirement must be completed between July 1st and June 30th immediately preceding an annual renewal cycle (June 30, 20XX). You will be required to sign a certification on your annual renewal form attesting that you have met the continuing competency requirements. Falsification on the renewal form is a violation of law and may subject you to disciplinary action.
Q: Am I required to send in evidence of my continuing competency hours at the time I renew? A: No. The Board will randomly select licensees for a post-renewal audit. If selected, you would be notified by mail that documentation is required and given a time frame within which to comply.
Q: Who maintains the required documents for verification of continuing competency hours? A: It is the responsibility of the individual psychologist to maintain the transcripts, certificates, and any other continuing competency forms or records for four years following the annual renewal period in which they were used. Do not send any forms or documents to the Board of Psychology unless requested to do so.
Q: Are there Board forms that I need to use for documenting my compliance with the continued competency requirement? A: No. Should you be chosen in the random sampling, you would be asked to provide official transcripts or certificates of completion from approved providers (18 VAC 125-20-123.C.1.2.)
