I have found out that these books are available in the uni's website in PDF format to download however I have no idea what device to get if I were to switch to PDFs instead of buying textbooks. Also do these pdf viewing devices allow you to right little notes? Don't want to buy tablet PC as it is expensive for me
Final question is I heard that with an e-reader it is difficult to view PDFs. What's the difference between an eBook and a normal PDF that you view on the computer?
You can view it with a program called Adobe Reader. If you have a laptop or something then you'll be fine and will save big. You can't write notes unless the author has allowed it. e-Reader? Not sure what that is...but PDFs are fine to view in my experience
