Can someone please tell me what are the TITLES of the chapters that are on the 8M syllabus? I found a 3rd edition of the text and was wondering how it compares to the 4th edition.

B&N sometimes has chapter titles. This link above should do it. due to its length it might not work.

Here's a little of it. But the chapters really don't match up correctly. The names of sections are different, you can see that things have been split into different chapters and more sections added. Plus, Kongstvedt explains that the 3rd edition is based primarily on Staff and Group models of HMO's, whereas the 4th edition no longer distinguishes too much between those older classifications.

Despite all my help, I still recommend getting the 4th edition. Check online for deals. $125 at b&n. Although, you get a barrage of e-mails, and I've had some bad experiences with them not having books that they're selling.
