Isn't there a copy available on the Internet? I don't think taking the course is a possibility for me since I'll be hard pressed to convince my employer to pay over 2,000 Euros for a course.
I don't think you can buy an official version of the book without attending the course.
Correct. The MOC training material is only available when you take the course.
To be honest, they're not that great anyway. Check Amazon for books on the subjects covered by the exam, they're more likely to be usable after the exam, rather than covering just what you need to pass the exam, not what is needed to work with the products.
