InformIT Pearson Education
I received an announcement of InformIT a few months ago. InformIT is a Pearson Educatioin User Group Program which represents Pearson technology brands including Addison-Wesley, Professional, Cisco Press, Exam Cram, IBM Press, Prentice Hall Professional, Que Publishing, and Sams Publishing.
I registered with them, and last month we received two unsolicited copies of Cocoa Program for Mac OS X, so it appears that they send user groups copies of new editions that are appropriate.
They also have Monthly User Group Contest to win 3 books. We entered and we won three books.
According to InformIt:
Official User Groups will receive up to 35% off every purchase on informIT.com and our partner imprint sites (ciscopress.com and ibmpressbooks.com)! Just follow these easy steps for added savings:
• Go to www.informit.com/join to sign in • Enter the following member code: USERGROUP
* You are only required to register and apply the member code once, but you must be logged in to automatically receive the special pricing.
You are encouraged to write reviews of Pearson books and we will post them or in your NVMUG eNewsletter and on this web site.We will submit the reviews to firstname.lastname@example.org and include our user group name and topic in the subject line, followed by Book Review, for example: Northern Vermont Macintosh User Group – Networking – Book Review Posting.
