Amazon to ship K&B book in June 2006

I've had the new K&B book on backorder for quite some time at Amazon.com. Today I received a notice that the book won't ship until June. I thought the book was going to come out earlier than that?

Hi Dave -

The new tiger cert. book (the so-called "K&B" book is at the printers now, and should be available in the next 2 weeks. There is another book that has the words "practice exams" somewhere in the title, and Amazon is saying June of 2006 for that book. We love Amazon, but sometimes they have difficulty keeping their data accurate! In this case, we're talking to the publisher about creating a practice exams book as a 2nd book to help prepare for the tiger exam, but we're still on the discussion stages.

hth,

Bert

Thanks for the update. I have both books (the Tiger book and practice exams on back order) so maybe that is why they notified me about the June delivery date. I'll cancel that order and reorder just the Tiger book for now.
