Where I can find books or course materials to help prepare for Esri Technical Certification in ArcGIS Desktop and Developer?

If you check the ESRI Technical Certification website, under each level (e.g. Desktop 10.1) they provide a PDF with a thorough list of resources including training courses, web lessons and books from ESRI Press.

    Thank you, But I am looking for a full online course that covers all fields of Esri Tecnical Certification in Arc Gis Desktop or developer. – elie el alam Apr 25 '13 at 19:11

    I think the idea of the certification is to gain the knowledge from many sources and demonstrate the knowledge in a test format - it's not designed to be a course that you "pass". Therefore, ESRI doesn't offer a one-stop-shop for the materials. – Radar Apr 25 '13 at 19:13

    esri offers 2 instructor-led courses (not online courses) that cover all fields of ArcGIS Desktop certification exams: Skills Review for ArcGIS Desktop Associate and Skills Review for ArcGIS Desktop Professional – Jens Apr 26 '13 at 7:14

    Just as a complement for what @Radar has already mentioned, visit the Esri Training web site where you can find lots of free web courses, recorded web seminars, and other materials. training.esri.com/gateway/… - here are the free ones. – Alex Tereshenkov May 31 '13 at 6:06
  • The first link now redirects to esri.com/training and the second is broken – PolyGeo Mar 12 '18 at 0:52

Check out http://ESRICertification.com. There's a bunch of ArcGISP Desktop, Developer, and ArcSDE questions on there to quiz yourself.

I've just ordered and received this book "Python Scripting for ArcGIS":

http://www.amazon.ca/Python-Scripting-ArcGIS-Paul-Zandbergen/dp/1589482824

It covers up to 10.1 and so far I find it quite useful.

    I agree, good book, however, it doesn't really have anything to do with the question and getting the certifications the OP asked about. – Craig Apr 26 '13 at 12:17
  • Yes it does. He said "Where can I find books or course material for esri arcgis desktop" That books is for ArcGIS desktop. Also, in addition to that, he also wanted to know about developer certification. – Mike Apr 26 '13 at 15:35
