Went to go look at the new CCNA voice book and thought this was funny to see

I am almost offended by this. I mean, no wonder so many idiots use **** these days.

    Yeah...Wow. That's terrible. I would've never have thought to see something like that on some e-commerce site, especially something like amazon.
    Isn't it funny how after you have the certifications, you don't care about sharing them as much?

    It is sponsored. Just means that Amazon does not do research on their advertisers and will take anyone as long as they are willing to pay... It's all about the $$$

    That is pretty bad business if you ask me. I guess they can't check every advertiser though icon_rolleyes.gif

    ya that is bad that people would be interested in that. i had a similar experience on a message board today while looking for some information on the CCIP track. Google linked me to this message board and the description mentioned study materials so I checked it out in hopes to find some more books. To my surprise, people were actually listing that same **** like it was a normal test material. I wanted to scream thinking about how much time we put into legitimately obtaining our certs while people shortcut it with that crap.

    I just received a notification on my LinkedIn profile updates advising a new discussion had been started in one of the Cisco Certification groups that I'm a member of.......

    I went to the discussion to see what it was about as it was a Storage and Systems Consultant with a PHD and what do I see............

    "Hi ...
    Now you can access all (well known **** site)-CISCO documents for free."

    and a link to a brain **** site......makes me sick!

    You're probably right, that they don't research all their sponsors. Fact is, Amazon is so huge, with so many people clamoring to advertise, that they simply can't. The only thing that can really solve this is people reporting the dumper-companies to Amazon, explaining what they are, and requesting that they be blocked from advertising. If enough people complain, it'll get attention, otherwise it'll be ignored and forgotten by the company.
