Hi Richard,

Good luck with the book. If one buys a papercopy does it come with an electronic copy?

I bought the OCA Java SE 7 Programmer I Study Guide by Liguori and Finegan and was very disappointed that only one eCopy could be downloaded and that copy had to be used on the machine it was downloaded on.

I was hoping to have one on my work computer and a copy on my home computer. Maybe you could use a different anti-piracy method.

Best of Luck,
Richard Reese

If you purchase the hard-copy, an e-book comes with it. I will check to see what restrictions the e-book version has and get back with you.

The response I got from Packt follows:

"When a reader buys an ebook, they get 3 versions - epub, mobi and pdf:

Apple supports epub
Kindle supports mobi
For any other device they need to check which format is compatible"

Thus, it looks like you should be able to use it on multiple platforms.

Thanks for the follow-up, I'm interested in building up my programming library and it's nice to know they are available for reference on my tablet
