    Hi all,

    My professor set the syllabus book as J Stewart's Calculus, Early Transcendentals, 9th Edition. I have the 6th edition though - just wanted to know if the two will have a difference big enough for me to have to get the latest one or not!

    (The professor said we're going to learn mainly from the slides, and the questions he'll give us from the book will just be for our practice - he won't be checking our answers.)

    Thanks in advance everyone

    My advice- don't use either. If it's a course text it should be well-stocked in the library. You can access it whenever you need it, don't have to pay a huge fee, and (best of all) don't have to haul it around with you everywhere.

    The versions don't make a difference. They just add a new CD or something to boost sales.

    Elementary calculus hasn't changed much since 2007.
