Goodbye Books – The End of an Era

A Picture of a eBook

We here at Professional Development Resources are in process of combining the convenience of our online CE tests with the power of Amazon’s exceptional inventory of book titles. We have found that you can get books from Amazon faster and for less than we can deliver, and you get CE tests instantly on our website.

We originally created ‘test only‘ courses so you could share course materials and earn CE credit. Up until now we have carried an inventory of our book-based home study courses to ship to you. With the recent rise in fuel costs, this is no longer an economical choice for us or for you.

An added benefit to Amazon’s services is the convenience of books being available for Kindle, or other e-book readers. This allows you instant access to your CE tests (from PDResources) and to your books (from Amazon). All for less money! (Average savings of 20%!)

This means that over the next few months we will be phasing out course books and offering only the CE tests that accompany the books. We will continue to create and offer CE tests based on published books, but you will have the freedom to choose from ordering the book online (from Amazon or another source), sharing with a colleague, or checking out from the library.

This is a great time to save on the remaining mail order courses in stock, now on closeout:

Our goal is to be book-free by the of 2011. What do you think?
