Here is a listing of the 3 key advantages of using a PCAT e-book:

  1. An e-book is easy to download and can be accessed almost instantaneously. However, regular PCAT books generally take several days to be delivered to your doorstep.

  3. E-books have a special feature wherein you could search for specific topics or chapters and scroll to those particular e-pages without having to shuffle through the pages of the entire book.

  4. Another feature of e-books is the inbuilt capability to bookmark or highlight topics for later review.

  5. E-books can be shared via email or in social networks where you can discuss difficult topics of the books, using the highlight feature described earlier. This sharing enables students to clarify their doubts with their coaches or tutors and enhances learning possibilities.
