I've purchased international versions of textbooks previously and never had an issue before, but this international version is NOT the same. The information and layout of the chapters is maintained, but the section problems are completely different. If you plan to use this for a class that assigns problems from the book for homework, DO NOT BUY THE INTERNATIONAL VERSION.

It delivers what it promises. A highly practical tour de force of engineering mathematics, butressed by a wide range of classical engineering problems
