Hi and Welcome -
Portable Document Format or PDF from Wikipedia -
Usually easier to print out, and that is generally what you want when doing study, as computer access can be slower -

I am not sure on the Software version, but you would want to save it to a USB Flash drive and keep opening it -

From passcert's FAQ

PDF version is the printable version,help your study more convenient.

I assume that "Software Style" is the electronic version that cannot be printed out, but I could be completely wrong. I don't see a description of it on Passcert's site. I do see that you have to have their software engines in order to take the "classes". Can you provide a direct quote from the site that says their materials are presented in it?

Edited to add:

On further exploration, I find that the products Passcert offers are provided in:

PDF Version

Test Engine Version

As already stated, the PDF version is the printable kind. The name "Test Engine Version" indicates that everything is on the computer and cannot really be printed out.
