Default Which Errata are applicable to my book?

The page at this link:
http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...Cd-ERRATA.html
... shows some very helpful errata, but as I'm looking through it, I see that much of it has already been corrected in my book. How do I know which ones are applicable to my "printing" of the book (so that I needn't look through each one)?

Thanks,
JohnStossel256

Tough question. I don't know of a good way. I know the publisher incorporated all of the existing errata into a recent printing so your edition may be mostly up to date.

Many of the errata are simple typos that probably won't confuse you in any case. I would just work through the book and ignore the errata unless you get confused.

Probably the most important items deal with answers to sample questions. If you get an answer "wrong," you might check the errata to see if the text is correct.

Hello,

I just bought the Kindle version on Amazon.ca and the kindle version contains all errata (not up to date)

How I can get a digital version without errata? It's possible?

Thank

Do you mean with the latest errata? I think the publisher only updates books occasionally so you probably can't get a version that includes the latest errata unless you happen to get it right after an update.

I talk about a errata from 2013.

Example :
05/23/213 Error in Answer to Chapter 2, Test Question 1

I have this errata in the kindle version from Amazon. I thought that the digital version would be updated.

The eBook (pdf, kindle) version on this site is updated without errata?

I have issue a refund from Amazon and I search a updated version...

Sorry but I don't know the publisher's production schedule. It's likely that the different editions are updated on different schedules.

You could try contacting the publisher at https://hub.wiley.com/community/support/wrox. I don't know if they can help, either, but it might be worth a try.

I think most publishers figure if you can get the errata online that should be enough. I suppose it's only a matter of time before someone figures out a way to make eBooks update in real time as updates are available.

No problem. You might think authors would know these things, but not so much.
