After the Terengganu state government decided to
give a boost in teaching and learning through the allocation of free ebooks to all Primary five and six students; it was time to examine the presence of e-books in the classrooms. A survey was conducted on 101 students to determine how they felt about using the e-book and
their experiences. It was discovered that a majority of these students liked using the e-book. However, although they had little problems using the e-book and the e-book helped to lighten the schoolbags,these new-age textbooks were not fully utilized. It is implied that perhaps the school administrators, teachers and students may not be
able to overcome the unfamiliar characteristics of the e-book and its limitations.
