    I never found any errors in my college text books.
    In fact, they are still like NEW!!

    That's funny right there... I hope your instructors were as understanding as mine were!

    I always used to get so frustrated with errors. I would be working through the derivation of a solution to some problem, and beating my head against the wall trying to figure out why I was so thick headed. Then I'd go to a professor's office to get the thing untangled in my mind, only to find out that I couldn't understand the derivation because there was an error in it...

    Now, I'm writing textbooks, and I have an appreciation for how difficult it is to keep the errors out. When you know what it's supposed to say, you can proofread right over them. Hell, I can't even type a comment on RTF without getting errors in there half the time.

    the scary part is...most of what was in current even textbooks when I was in school are now in history books! Hell, kids graduating college this year weren't even born when Reagan was shot! Its ancient history!

    The funny part is that was the first time I went to college.
    Then I got drafted into the military.

    When I came back I went to engineering school.
    I never understood 80% of the stuff they were talking about.

    How I passed I will never know.
    But I got into power distribution testing & maintenance.
    Including Infra-red testing and vibration analysis of large rotational apparatus.
    I wrote a book on using ultra sonics for non intrusive testing of high voltage corona discharge and dielectric insulation breakdown.


    Football was funner!!
