To report errors for any Microsoft titles, first go to the website http://microsoftpress.oreilly.com/ and search for the book for which you’re reporting errors.

Next, navigate to that book’s catalog page (as seen in the example below) and click on the View/Submit Errata link on the left side of the screen (See arrow A below.)

  • Well this help us about the books that are published and it doesn't look like that where should I ask if I need to get book. Say for example, I am working as a GIS (Geographic Information System) Assistant. If I want to find MCTS bing maps then I don't find any books at all. Where do I need to put such a request. Google earth is currently offering a feature that if they update a map from a particular they used to inform (albeit automatically). Is there any similar service available say for example a book is published about bing maps?
