eBooks provide random access to technical material, while presenting the same content as class notes in a more descriptive manner. They provide an index for quick access, and can be downloaded to personal e-readers, laptop computers, and e-pads, and even smartphones. At the initial level, these eBooks are intended for use by students taking the courses. This consideration demands respect for brevity and quick movement through content, at the expense of the many qualifications and exceptions that a standard technical textbook would include. Some examples are given, but for the most part the emphasis is exactly as in a university classroom.
