    I am preparing to take a certification exam that is open book, open computer, open class notes in fact everything except the ability to call a friend for a lifeline. I am putting a bunch of documents on my iPad and really like iBook, I have a bunch of PDFs already bbut there is a data dictionary that is in CHM format.

    Can iBooks reference this type of file?

    Thanks in advance

    I believe the answer is no. However, a quick search of the search term "CHM" in the App Store shows that there are a bunch of apps that purport to be able to read CHM. And, most of them appear to be free.

    So, all I can suggest is to try one (or more) of them out... (I've never had an occasion to read/need CHM, so I wouldn't know of any good apps).

    Super Moderator is like the forum police,
    another possible solution is to look for a chm to PDF converter that runs in windows.

    Not that it needs to be said, but:

    The only three formats iBooks supports are ePub, iBooks Author (.ibooks), and PDF. The PDF must not have DRM (Digital Rights Management).
