The Nernst effect has been measured for the anisotropic and extremely anisotropic superconductors YBa2Cu3O7-δ and Bi2.1Sr1.8Ca1Cu2O 8+δ in the magnetic field up to 14 T parallel to the c-axis. From the Nernst electric field the transport entropy per unit length of a flux line is estimated. The relationship between the transport entropy and the anisotropy of high-Tc superconductor is discussed.
