Excellent book to pass the exam

It worked pretty well for me: I passed the exam with a score of 91.7%, using only this book. It is perfect to prepare for the exam; you just have to learn every single byte of information.
I've found the exercises very similar to those the real exam poses.
Thanks Sybex SO much!

300+ Pages of Solid eBay Selling Strategies!

This is simply an INCREDIBLE book if you want to make serious money selling on eBay!

Many eBay sellers (including myself) have typically learned by trial and error. We know something works, but never took the time to understand exactly why. I noticed that as I read this book, I kept thinking "Oh.. that's why it works!" Scot explains in a friendly, easy to follow manner, pretty heavy concepts.

I love the use of REAL-LIFE examples to explain concepts. Making some Excel spreadsheets available from his blog to simplify the business side is worth MANY times the price of the book!

What I can't understand is where Scot found the time to write such a complete book. I know how much time and effort it takes to write and teach others eBay selling SECRETS (My monthly newsletter at www.PlatinumPowerSeller.com takes days for each issue). My guess is that he didn't sleep much for a while :-)

He is not just eBay-centric either. He covers selling at other auction sites, using PPC (Pay per click), search engines, eBay Keywords, Branding yourself, etc..

Even if you just skim through sections, the knowledge you will absorb is worth many times the ridicuously low price!

Great job Scot!

A lot of typos

This is a decent study aid, but it has a lot of mistakes that could possibly cause you to answer incorrectly on the real exam. Another round of editing and this exam cram will be ready for prime time.

Life saver

I don't know who was paying the other people to write those reviews. This book is TERRIBLE. The words "clear" and "concise" are the last words I would use to describe this waste of paper. The logic is twisted, convoluted, and ambiguous. The examples are insufficient. There are no redeemable qualities about this book...
