Textbooks

Postby Tara Ostad 1H » Sun Sep 25, 2016 3:47 pm

I accidentally got the 5th edition of the textbook, will that really make a difference or should I get the 6th edition?

I'm pretty sure the chapter contents will be the same, but the problems might have different numbers. Try comparing the chapter content and problems with someone who has the 6th edition. You should be good with the 5th edition if it's the same material.

For the most part, the material covered in each book is close to being the same, but if you plan on doing the homework problems, the 5th and 6th edition problems do not align meaning that a problem in the 6th edition might be another problem in the 5th edition (E.32 in the 6th edition is E.28 in the 5th edition). Also, the 5th edition does include problems from the 6th edition, but not all of them. I would recommend getting the 6th edition.

If you want to get the 6th electronic version of the textbook, plz email me your email at helengracehuang@live.com, so that you can use this book to find the right numbers of problems ^-^
