Purchasing Options: Buy Online from ASCENT or Amazon

Did You Know?

Many of ASCENT’s learning guides are available for purchase on Amazon.com which means you now have the option of purchasing your training materials through ASCENT’s online eStore, or directly from Amazon. Each store has its own benefits – it’s up to you where to buy!

Have a look at our comparison chart to see the different features available from each store. One of the largest differences between the 2 online retailers is the binding of the printed guides you’ll receive after ordering. If you prefer the spiral binding on ASCENT books, then the ASCENT eStore is for you. (Amazon books have perfect binding).

In either case, you’re getting the same great content!
