You Gotta Errata?


Kimberly Kim, book-survey-data-obsessed managing editor, here. I’m reading through the comments from the past quarter’s book surveys. Several folks mentioned they want a place they can go to view or submit any errors that might sneak their way into our books. Guess what! That place exists. Each Microsoft Press book has an errata page on http://microsoftpress.oreilly.com/. On the errata page for an individual title, you’ll find a list of errors and their corrections that were found after the book was released. If you’ve stumbled on an error that is not already listed, you can submit your own errata from this page.

The quickest way to find the errata page for your book is to go to http://microsoftpress.oreilly.com/ and type the ISBN code (located above the barcode on the back cover of your book) into the search box at the top of the page. This will take you to the catalog page for your book. On the catalog page, under the picture of the book cover, click View/Submit Errata.

Oh, and when you’re finished, since you’re already in the neighborhood, go on back to the catalog page and click Give Feedback. That will take you to the books survey, where you can give me even more data to obsess over.

    Glad to see you have finally got the old errata across from the MS Support websites into the OReilly one. It was very confusing for a while to see older books (eg Self-paced training kits) with supposedly no errata.

    Thanks!

    Now that you're moving to Pearson… where are the errata pages located?

    I tried to find them on microsoftpress.oreilly.com with obvious no results; as the book suggested and this blog too.

    I think a repost of this article would be of great help.
