Hi all!

I'm thinking of purchasin Anderson's CFD book. However, I've seen a big price difference between the american and international edition.

Does anybody know if they are diffent? Are they the same book?

Thanks

May just be me, but I have had horrible experience with international editions. Riddled with typos, errors in the problems at the end of chapters, equations blatantly wrong...

I'd recommend amazon's used book selection, usually good quality for half the price or less. Just buy the cheapest "Like New" or "Very Good" book that has a reputable dealer.

I got Anderson's book (computational fluid mechanics and heat transfer) off of Amazon for $8.95. I am almost positive that there was a misplaced decimal in the price (should have been $89.50), but I jumped on it when I saw it and got it - hardcover and in great condition.
