A matter of understanding

I am looking at buying the "Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary, 7th edition" from BoB. While looking at the dictionary at mobipocket.com, I noticed an amendment by the publisher (from the last year) that a few errors have been reported fixed now. I do not see the same amendment at BoB, just the release Date of 2007. If I buy the dictionary there, will I receive the ammended version or the original, flawed, one?

Thanks,
kaas

I'd recommend asking BoB - they are very responsive to questions. Given, though, that the eBook file essentially comes directly from the publisher, if it has been amended, I'm pretty sure you'd get the amended version.

well, I did ask BoB, but strangely did not receive any answer, which has never happened before...
But if I understand you correctly, I do not download from BoB, but from mobipocket/ the publisher anyways?
thanks again for your quick reply!

cheers,
kaas

That's my understanding of the way it works, yes.
