    International Edition Books vs National Edition Books?

    Okay, so I found one of my books I need for school on Amazon:

    Introductory Circuit Analysis: Amazon.ca: Robert L. Boylestad: Books

    I can get it used for $138.42, which is disgustingly expensive for a used copy. However, I found the international edition of the book on ebay for like $39
    Introductory Circuit Analysis by Robert L. Boylestad (2010, Other, Mixed... | eBay


    Most people say the two books are the same, but for an engineering course, the units of the problems need to match that of the instructors. Now, I assume because it is 'international' they will be using the metric system (the same one that Canada uses) but I'm afraid the problem sets might be different. Can anyone testify their experience with the international edition of books?



    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

    Electrical engineering is broad. Computer engineering is specialized with computer circuitry in mind and microprocessors.
