I recommend saving your money and stick with the 7th edition
By Thomas Robbins
The book came as advertised. No issues with seller, or delivery. However, this author is clearly just out to make money. There are several mistakes in this edition, that were not in the first edition. Answers in the back of the book are often incorrect, and several examples clearly evaluate to the wrong numerical value. I recommend saving your money and stick with the 7th edition.
