got a certification exam coming up and am studying at the library. after college, i studied for my professional license and one other certification and now this one. i'm not sure when i'll stop getting more certificates as this may be the last. unless i get an executive MBA or something.
BTW, i never did study at the library when i was and undergrad nor in grad school. my field don't involve a lot of reading and memorization.
The public library was like a second home to me when I was a kid. I still read much more than most people I know and I love it. There was a branch library close enough that I could ride my bike to it. The main library was big and sort of intimidating in The Downtown area, which was not our part of town. It had a big fountain in the front of the building and had scary-looking (to a kid) natural history exhibits inside in addition to all the books.
Studying at the library is a good option especially when you have people to disturb you at home. If you are not provided with a peaceful environment then it is impossible for you to study for such certificate courses.

without it, I couldn't visit the forums, do Internet shopping & searches, get free movies, ...
Today being Tuesday: we are at the Library. We can only get dial-up Internet at home.... so every Tuesday is library day.
During the Summer, we travel for work [3 or 4 days a week - some weeks], so the rest of the time: LIBRARY !!!
We have seen every types of Libraries, from Maine to Virginia. All libraries have a different flavour. From the tiny ones in Tunbridge, VT and Cornish, ME; to the big one in Syracuse, NY - where a security guard warned us right away about keeping an eye on our laptops.
Next to our "home town [15 miles] Library", the one we have spent the most time over the years, is in West Lebanon, NH [highly recommended ! - and they always have a full shelf of free books !] Camping at the WalMart there - spending time at the Library ..... that's what I call living cheap.
[sitting a few feet from me is a youngish man we see every week, he seems to be studying something - laptop, & documents all over.]
