    From what format to pdf? To convert from Word, Excel, PPT or epub to pdf there are many online converters. I like to use smallpdf.com.

    To convert a print book to pdf, the options are pay and get it done (such as Book Scanning: We Scan Books For Consumers | Non-Destructive Scanning Services, Scanning Book), use a flatbed scanner (and associated software), or use a mobile phone and a document scanner app. Would also depend on can the book's binding be removed.

    High school or college students would know the latest & cheap options. : )

    @Rihana thanks for the reply. This is a normal 200 pages book. You mentioned about using a mobile phone and a document scanner app. Can you mention which one?

    Dear @abc00 ,

    I use the app 'genius scan' to scan the papers I usually want and it converts to pdf - the app takes pictures and converts. It is pretty good and efficient - for 200 pages it may be a bit tedious but doable. Hope it helps.
