International Editions of textbooks

<p>I was wondering what people's experience has been with international version of textbooks. I know the content is generally the same, but the exercises may be different. What's been your experience, especially with accounting texts?</p>

<p>My D just used one for macro with Denslow and it was fine. Nothing was different but the cover.It was less than half the price and we sold it on ebay so the net cost was minumal..</p>

<p>Sorry for the double post. Was trying to fix a typo from my phone and it reposted.</p>

<p>Always been happy, since I always know people in class and can just borrow their book if I need to worry about homework. Extra points for classes that don't have assigned homework. Content is always the same, homework is almost always different</p>

<p>Cheap to buy
A b**** to sell.</p>

<p>I have to echo what Zaersz said. I used them for a couple of classes and the actual text was the same and th wording of homework problems was the same but the numbers were different. Made the books kind of useless in that I couldn't check my answers with the keys provided by the professor when I did the problems.</p>

<p>I agree with danny_125...bought a $96 book for $28 international new, nothing was different except the pages were in black and white. I found it pretty difficult to get rid of though, still have it from the fall actually, but being that I got it for around a third of the price, it's not much to complain about.</p>
