Quick Someone, Help

  1. Looking to pickup A&P Book: Anatomy & Physiology: The Unity of Form and Function
    Author: Kenneth S. Saladin, 4th Edition.

    Does anyone know if the International Version (Hardcover) is the same as the US Hardcover? All the Book sites tout is "word for word" both book 1180 pages I think, has anyone had any experience with International Version vs. US Version?

    I would like to go this route as is $110.00 cheaper.

    Anyone who knows, your input would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I know a business grad student who only buys international editions and they were exactly the same. I have no idea about science books though. Hope this helps

    I think that if the edition # is the same, the material is the same - either the page numbers will be different, or the pictures may be in black and white (cheaper to print)... Hope that helps!!

    I had the same question when I was ordering my Organic chem book. It ended up being a softcover book, and didn't have a periodic table on the inside cover, but all else was the same. The instructor actually told me to buy the international version.

    You might want to check out the softcover-as it's ALOT cheaper, ($58.00)! I believe the pages are in blk & wht, but the claim is that they are the same. One site to explore: abe books online.
    Hope it works out for you!
