Below is what it look like when I searched for AutoCAD as an example. There where only three quite old books specifically about AutoCAD. There are many more books on subjects like databases, IT, programming, etc.
- 72 books matching the category "Visual Basic".
- 81 books matching the category ".NET".
- 67 books matching the category "SQL Server".
- 26 books matching the category "Adobe".
The search functionality and overall impression of the site is good so far.
Between $219.99 for a 10-Slot Tech Collection and $439.99 for unlimited access of an annual individual subscription. Is it worth it? I'm not sure yet. I usually don't buy and read that many books.
Not so obvious is what 10-Slot Tech Collection really means. Notice that you need to keep a book on you bookshelf for 30 days. Slot values can range from one-half to three slots. Even if you only want to read one page of a book you need to add it to the bookshelf.
Anyone of you that are using Safari Books Online or something like it? What alternatives are there?
