stands for electronic book. This e-book
looks a little like a web-page, with links and "forward" and
"back" buttons. You will find
it very easy to use. The e-books on this
site are “stand-alone”, meaning, once downloaded you will not need any other
software or browser to run them.
To reduce problems with downloads, such as getting past firewalls, all the e-books has been compressed using WinZip (a program that is widely used to compress files). WinZip creates a folder with a .zip extension. If you do not already have WinZip installed on your computer please click here to download the Evaluation version, which is free.
Immediately you click on a download link, a screen will pop up giving you the option to either Open the zip file from this page, or to Save it on your hard-disk. Click on the "Save" option. This will allow you to save the file anywhere you like on your computer. The download will last from a few seconds to several minutes, depending on the speed of your internet connection.
Running the E-book
Once the download is over, double-click the compressed zip file on your
computer. WinZip will start
automatically and you will see the book listed as a file with an “.exe”
(executable) extension. Double-click the
file and the book will run immediately.
And that's it. No waiting, no checking your e-mail, no registration and certainly no passwords.
