I live in India and I had a very difficult time trying to purchase the SCEA study guide written by Mark Cade today. Here is a link to the book.

http://www.amazon.com/Certified-Enterprise-Architect-Technology-Study/dp/0130449164

Almost every book store kept saying that they dont have it in their stock. They say that only the original book from the sun press can be purchased (from the US ) and that they would have to order it to get it. It looks like the Sun press does not allow any other publication to publish this book (like an Indian publisher ). Has anyone else had such an experience ? They say that the book will cost Rs 1500 , which is around 32$, the original price of the book.

What is the latest edition of this book ?. I searched the forum and I am pretty confused. The latest edition seems to be the one published in 2002. Is there a later version that I can purchase ? The online preview version of the book on amazon and google do not specify the edition of this book. Does the amazon link that I mentioned above point to the latest edition of this book ? - the one published in 2002 ?

My concern is that I dont want to order an old edition, because I would have to make a down payment before they order the book, and there are no refunds if I am not happy with the end product.

There's only one edition currently available - the one you're seeing from 2002. It works out alright, since the exam has not been updated since then, and I found that it worked just fine for studying for the actual exam, as well as a decent guide for completing Part II.

I would be remiss in our collective responsibility to police ourselves, however, if I failed to point out that to the best of my knowledge, there is no current 'softcopy' of the book legally available, and would remind that offering illegal electronic copies of books on this site is against the rules.

Everybody, the book is copyrighted. Stop asking for illegal copies of it NOW.

ManojKumar Unnikrishnan, first and last warning:
Never, ever, offer illegal material here on JavaRanch. We take a very firm line against piracy.
