Textbook Questions & Information (FAQs)

Buying Previous Edition Textbook rather than Current Edition at 80% lower prices

Bringing in new edition is publisher tatics to make money again and again. New edition deprive the used textbook market and students from taking advantage of cheap textbook deals. Often there is little or  no difference from the previous edition. Publisher just change cover page and questions at the end of chapter. Current edition is 80-90% higher priced that previous edition.

How much as calculus, algebra, chemistry, physics changed over the last years? Nothing ! It may be justifiable to bring about new edition in subjects such as biology, law, economics, business, marketing, heath care every 5 years not every 2 years.  affordtextbooks.com.com survey with professors in 4 years colleges shows  that new edition are justifiable only when considerable changes in the subject is visualized.

A used previous edition textbook will be excellent study material for the tests, midterms, final and quizzes , but may be not for homework problems because you instructor may have assigned problems from the textbook which may be different in current ( new edition) and previous edition. In this case check it you classmates or friends before solving your homework problems.
