The links are for all the courses that KASNEB offers to its candidates. If you click on any of the links (you definitely need to click on the course you are undertaking), you will open a PDF to the list of books you can read.
The list of resources for that particular course has all the reading materials. So, in case you don’t find the specific e-book on the portal, you can always look for the books in libraries and bookshops.

That should be something like this: KASNEB/nac/68145 and send to 20558. Ensure that the line you are using is a Safaricom sim card.
