Printing from eBook

Does anyone know if there is printing functionality from the eBook? Either the online or desktop version? I'm debating if I should just buy the hard copies but would prefer to save money if printing is possible...

    I debated it for a year.  Finally broke down and bought the books.  I should have done it sooner.  The material is too long and dense to read online.  It's so nice to be able to kick back with a normal book.  My eyes appreciate it too.

    It's possible using the VitalSource Bookshelf software through which you view the eBook.
    When you choose to print, it appears to only allow you to print one page at a time, but I discovered that I was able to print each Study Session in full every time. I printed to PDF first just to ensure that it had exported every page.
    Now I use a mix of eBook and paper, depending on where I'm studying. Paper is preferable as I tend to get less distracted than if I am in front of my computer. If you have the option of printing and buy a bunch of binders or wallets, it's very cost effective.

    I finally got a chance to download the software and was able to print by section. It's unfortunate the type is so small but I'm going to see how well this will work out. So far I'm using the CFA curriculum and Analyst Notes. Are you using anything else to supplement your studying?

    Not yet. It's proving difficult but I'm attempting to read the entire curriculum first. A friend who just earned his charter advised me to ignore the curriculum and get the Schweser Notes, Secret Sauce, Qbank and Cheat Sheet.
    If I find my progress wanting by the new year, I'll consider trying something else.

    I'm toying with whether to use Anki to create my own flashcards for review as I study. It'll make my progress even slower but I'll retain everything better. I just have to figure out how to structure the question/answer format for different bits of knowledge.
