I was just wondering if anyone had any experience reading study books such as the Microsoft Press study books on the Kindle E Reader (or similar) and if they could share their experiences or recommendations?

It would be a convert from PDF to Kindle format.

As I have a Kindle Fire, it would be really difficult to read a study book effectively on one. Study book for tech products are especially difficult because they have so much information spread out all over the book. They are books you want to flip around and highlight a lot of things. If you want to go this route, just be warned that it will be a lot more problematic than just going out and buying an actual book.

Yeah, it totally depends on how you study. If you flip and highlight, like TSZ mentions, using an e-reader might be difficult.

My experience with Kindle-formatted books has been disappointing. Kindle changes around formatting (or eliminates it entirely!) in the books I've seen... OK for novels, but horrible for study guides or technical manuals. Not sure how well Kindle handles conversion from PDF. My iPad displays PDFs natively, which works great.
