Hi Jeanne Boyarsky, Scott Selikoff, and Wiley Publishing,

I'm excited to have just purchased (and will began reading) the Kindle Edition of OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-808! 

This is my first Kindle Study Guide.  With my previous printed study guides, before and throughout my time reading each guide and based upon the author's "approved" errata, I have manually updated each of my my printed study guides.  Being that I have just purchased a Kindle Edition of your book, is there a process in place and/or does it get automatic updates?

Either way, based upon all the Certification Results that I've read, thanks for writing such a wonderful guide!

Charles,
At this time, the Kindle is the same as the paper book (except there are inexplicably a couple of Kindle specific errors that were reported and we posted in the errata.) This may change in the future, but right now Wiley's model is to keep the two in sync.

As an author, we get to see stats for the book. I was surprised with the high ratio of paper books. I like paper books better, but I thought I was weird in that . It might be a study guide thing -more desire to scribble in the book.

I'll keep this in mind when it's time for me to purchase your OCP: Oracle Certified Professional Java SE 8 Programmer II Study Guide: Exam 1Z0-809 book.  My normal usual highly creative scribbling is completely disallowed with Kindle, understandably for update capability.  Currently however, without automatic updates, that may be a huge factor for me to return to print. 

Thanks again!
