Thanks for the info on Coursesmart. I didn't know about it.

I do think that it would take a little getting used to (e-text books). I am not doing well on my how to books that are on my touch.

I am too used to pen and paper, or highlighting. I guess I could still take conventional notes, but I need to experiment with highlighting on the screen.

Highlighting works great on a touch screen, so I'd imagine the iPad will make it very easy. I still take traditional notes, just because one of the ways that I learn new info is to write it out over and over again while saying it out loud. But taking quick notes on the iPad should be no problem.

I am not a student, but maybe you could, then, just print your highlights out.

Perhaps, iPad text books will download to the computer and then will sync chapter by chapter. That is how Dear John is, it is in 2 parts.
