A lot of folks (like myself), including many folks that achieved on the Certification Results forum, don't want to "waste time" on external material (... "Cliff Notes" please). That was the sole reason that I (and maybe others) purchased the "Study Guide".
I imagine that a lot goes into authoring and making decisions about what is and/or what isn't relevant to the exact specifics for a particular book (or chapter or section or paragraph or sentence or fragment of code).
As you alluded, the API is always (freely) available. I imagine that the publishers may need to charge us more for more pages if they have to write/include/mention everything that we all individually want to satisfy us all.
