Difference between hard copy and the soft copy Post Wed Mar 28, 2007 3:36 pm
Hi,

I am new to this forum and i have a ques :
Is there any difference between the soft copy available of OG and the hard copy?
I have OG11 SC and CR soft copies and i am looking for Other part of it i.e. RC, Quant etc.
So i would like to know the difference.
If there is no difference then i can take a printout and start studying from that only.

Thanks

SoftCopy of a book is actually a Scanned version of that book, you would see them on internet in 'pdf' format most of the times.
and let me tell you It is Illegal to scan and distribute/ share such copyrights material.

Some people find it easy to study with papers while some people like to sit in front of PC its your personal choice.

Just have to echo: yes, the OG is not published officially in soft copy, so if you obtain a scanned copy, you are studying from a bootlegged or illegal copy. There's nothing to stop you from scanning your own hard copy of course - that's legal. But not purchasing a hard copy yourself and studying from a scan of someone else's hard copy is illegal.
