    AICP exam study CD

    Just curious, why is this CD $105 for APA members, what are my dues being spent on? I'm not trying to sound negative here and $105 won't break my bank acct., but what am I getting out of my dues??? It seems like a bit of money for not much, then if I want anything else they nickel and dime me to death.

    Is the CD copyright protected? Thinking about asking a friend to just burn a copy for me and split the cost with him.

    Every state APA chapter has a "Professional Development Officer" who should assist those taking the exam. Many PDO's have copies of the CD to lend to candidates. See what they have to offr you...unless you are in Kansas.

    Welcome to the world of APA when it comes to excessive costs. I used every available resource, copywrited or not, to study for the AICP. If you can split the cost of the cd, go for it. If you are in Missouri, the PDO is Ada Hood. I can also send you a couple of websites that I used as study aids.

    Thanks for the info everyone...

    Jenniplans, I've seen a few websites not sure if any would be helpful so if you found some to be a benefit I'd love to know which ones they were! Thanks again...

    Nope, better than those aggies. I'll let yOU take a guess! LOL Hey I shot you a PM. I haven't taken the test yet, I started to prep for it a year ago then moved to Tejas, so it threw my plan off a bit. Just starting back up and trying to get a copy of the CD. I'm working in the downtown area right now...

    Oops, didn't get your cyburbia message... I sent you an email one. Maybe we can get in touch and try to figure out this whole AICP thing.
