I'm currently taking up a bachelor's degree in history at a distance-learning college. Since history is not a popular degree in that school, they don't revise their history books/ modules regularly. In fact, most of the modules they gave me were published about twenty years ago and contain few typos and outdated information. Should I make a fuss about this, or should I just correct the errors myself?

By the way, in general, the old references are still informative and useful.

  • Most institutions try to maintain accurate information especially in relation to their teaching. They will probably appreciate knowing about the inconsistencies in their information. – Darrin Thomas Apr 24 '16 at 21:59

Just send an email. Most authors keep an errata on their website.
