Warning: There may be Introduction and Comprehensive versions of the book which include less and more material respectively, may have different exercises and may cost more.
New or used (if available) books will work equally well for this course.
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.
