There may be other versions of the book which include less or more material respectively, may have different exercises and may cost more.
The assignments can be done with a used book if you want to save a few bucks.
Note the Kindle versions and rental versions sometimes are often missing resources like Appendices and sample files, BUT we can generally work around that by me adding the materials to the Web site – so let me know if that happens.
