Are the Head First Series available in e-Book format?

Hi ALL,

I am currently reading the Head First series of books for EJB, Servlets, & Java.

First of all congrats to the authors on introducing the learning methodology that we all know works from Kindergarten ... Pictures and short bursts of information presented in a graphical manner that is interesting & imprints in brain rather than the student trying to cram it in ...

I wish they had more such books on topics like Data Structures or Compilers when I was in college.

I wanted to ask (and this might have been answered already), ARE THESE BOOKS AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE IN E-BOOK FORMAT LIKE PDF OR CHM ? I looked for the same in amazon where I brought the hard copies from, but could not find them.

Regards

I dont think they are explicitly on sale as ebooks. Some of those java books ( like SCJP study guide. The hard copy. ) do come with a CD but i have never heard of one being purchased online as a pdf or ebook.


SCJP 6 articles - SCJP 5/6 mock exams - More SCJP Mocks

HI DEBDUTTA!

NO - THE HEAD FIRST BOOKS AREN"T AVAILABLE IN 'e' FORMAT - WE HAVE HAD TOO MUCH PIRACY UNFORTUNATELY

BTW - IT MIGHT BE BETTER IF YOU CHANGED YOUR DISPLAY NAME SO THAT IT'S NOT ALL IN CAPITAL LETTERS !!!

It's shouting and kind of not too friendly.

Thanks,

Bert

Hi Bert,

Thanks for the information, I have written to the customer service in Safari Online Books if your books are available for online reading, if so, I think that membership is also a good option.

I hope that it is something that is legal & approved by the authors.

As suggested, I have changed my display name from ALL CAPS to Title Case Like This, some of the Perils of auto-fill in toolbars ..
