Don't order the international edition of your course textbook. Ten percent of our students enrolled in Global Business have learned that if it sounds too good to be true, it is. While the international versions might be cheaper, they'll not be compatible with your courses.

If you do an online search for your textbook using the ISBN, you can be directed to a site selling the international version. To be sure you get the text you need, read all information carefully and match the ISBN to the version being sold.

What is an ISBN?

Every book has a unique International Standard Book Number (ISBN). Just like different editions of the same textbook have different ISBNs, the international edition of a textbook will also have a unique ISBN. Always check the ISBN listed for your course textbook to ensure you purchase the text for which your course was written.
