Submitting Errata

Posted 22 July 2009 - 06:57 PM

I found several errors in an otherwise good book but I saw no corrections for the book on the website even though the website is active. I submitted the error-corrections in hopes that they will be corrected for future editions. I think this is a good way to practice your programming skills anyway, as you have to confirm that they are indeed errors and usually you'll get feedback from the company.

If you've ever submitted corrections before, did you notice that they were correct in the next edition, or published on the webpage? Also, I was wondering if any companies give credit to the people who find the errors. I know if you found any errors in any of Knuth's books he used to send you a check for $2.56, as 256 corresponds to the hexidecimal dollar.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

I have never submitted an errata. I have plenty of time to do so but one little error or two doesn't really bother me. Nobody is perfect.
