Even though it is not the same book as US ...
By Jhajj Saab
Even though it is not the same book as US edition, it has exactly same content. This book is international edition published in India, but is exactly similar to the book that is published in US and is much cheaper.

I ordered this instead for like $7 shipped to my house
By Brett Z. Nephew
I had to take Diffy-Q's and the class required the 10th edition book. One look at the price, and I said no way. I ordered this instead for like $7 shipped to my house, and used it for the entire quarter. Everything that the teacher went over was in this book in it's exact form as it was in the 10th edition, some of the problems were different, but he printed out sets for us anyway. It ended up being a great reference for the money and I'll hang onto it.
Some of the examples are a little hard to follow, steps are skipped (seemingly fairly important steps) which can kind of leave you scratching your head here and there.
The book is black and white, and not color like the new edition, but who cares.. It's 1/200 the price or whatever.
If you need a Zill book for your class, go talk to your instructor and find out how they plan on doing homework and see if you can swing an older version. Textbooks are crazy expensive.

Questions are Mixed Up
All of the text and images are the same as the original book but the problems are in a different order which is frustrating if you have to do assigned problems from the text. A really good buy for the price but just be weary of the questions being switched up!
