i see no reason to provide anything more than an
outline of topics for the exam(s). It seems everyone
has agreed there is already plenty of good
documentation available. If the bsd certification(s)
get big enough, rest assured publishers will release
their own books.
That being said, perhaps the next step should be to
discuss specifically what topics will be covered, from
there, the ouline will take its shape naturally, as
well as the certification path itself.
