Cisco .MOBI : hightlights synced to ALL amazon kindles? (or local one device only)?

I decided I will get the CCNA cisco content:
http://www.amazon.com/Routing-Switching-200-120-Official-Library/dp/1587143879/ref=tmm_hrd_title_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=

The ebook doesn't contain the dvd, software, practice exams, etc so they want you to buy the boxed set which contains a 70% coupon to buy the ebook format.

QUESTION: is the amazon ebook purhcased from Amazon or Cisco directly?

If it's purchased from Cisco,  I'm concerned that  just because it's in mobi format (amazon native), does that mean that highlights are synced to all kindle devices?  For example, if you send a PDF to a kindle and highlight it, the highlights remain local to the device :-(  Is that's what's going to happen with a .mobi purchased from Cisco (assuming that's how it works)?

I really only want to read electronically and hate having to buy the paper boxed set to get all the software & stuff.  

If it turns out you get a .mobi which you email to a particular kindle, and the hightlights are not shared, then maybe I'll buy the kindle version from amazon, AND the boxed set too - whatta waste!

Thanks for any tips,
Mike

Your link leads to amazon.  If you buy via that link, then you're buying from Amazon and any highlights and/or notes you make should be synchronized across devices.

Yes, I'm wondering if I buy the .MOBI from Cisco if the same is true.

If it's like a .pdf you email to a device, then I worried that highlights might not sync.

You can email it to your Kindle address (foobar@kindle.com) with CONVERT in the subject line.  Then notes and whatnot will sync across devices.

Much as I suspected,  highlights only get synchronized across devices IF you buy the .mobi from amazon.

Here's the response from Amazon Tech:

Hello Michael,

I understand that you would like to know whether your highlights in a book purchased from Cisco.Mobi will be available on your all devices. I'll be glad to assist you with this.

I would like to bring to your kind attention that all the highlights that are made on books are available on all devices only when the book is purchased from Amazon, but not from Cisco.mobi.

Cisco.mobi is a native to amazon formats and it supports all kindle format books so that they can be read on the kindle device.

If you buy a kindle format cisco book your highlights will not be synced to all other devices, it is local to the particular device on which you read the book.

I apologize for any disappointment this may have caused to you.

Sadly @asavener, if you "CONVERT" via email and send to a kindle device, highlights do NOT sync to other kindles on your account.

I have tried this first hand and subsequently confirmed.
