I’m frustrated

Which printing of Head First C#

I looked at Head First C# in several stores. All had the Nov 07 printing date even though some had the 4/08 updates and some the 01/08 updates. None had the latest updates.. On-line stores have good prices but how can I be sure I'm going to get the latest edition? I want to monkey with as few errata items as possible. (The huge number of errata in the first printing is a problem--a breakdown in the editing process at O'Reilly.)

  • Hi Steve,

    We try our best to minimize errata on all title releases introduced to the public. It looks like the most recent printing of Head First C# was April 2008. The next one is scheduled for the end of September.

  • Hello Rick,

    We'll be receiving new stock right around the 30th of this month. Once it has been received it will be shipped out to the various bookstores that have quantity on order with us. The easiest way to get a copy of this book would be to call our customer service number and have us assist you. Otherwise you'd have to go to your local book store and search through store shelves checking the print dates. I am not familiar with how other companies handle checking reprint dates, such as Amazon, so I can not recommend them as a guaranteed method of getting the newest printing.

    You can call our customer service line at 1-800-889-8969. We're open M-F 7am-5pm -8GMT
