The intl version isn't the same

While the main content is basically the same between both editions, the examples found throughout the chapters and the homework exercises are not the same. I had to download a digital copy in order to get the correct homework problems for my class.

Terrible quality, can't read homework problems

The pages fall right out, which isn't even the worst part. I could live with that. What I can't live with is the fact that the ink levels on these pages are so terrible that I can't even read the homework problems assigned to me. This product is absolute garbage. It looks like this book came from an illegitimate warehouse with poor low quality ink and pages and they were extra cheap and stingy with the ink.

Very difficult material

The mathematics in this book were very discrete and much too abstract for a beginner to understand...

avoid the international edition

although the description said the contents are the same, the pages and questions are out of order. I was unable to use this book for my class.

Beware of international editions. The one my son received did not have the same questions in it as the american one and therefore we had to buy the american edition as his instructor required these questions be anwsered as part of his assignment.
