View Full Version : ISBN for course 2 book
08-05-2002, 04:04 PM
Hey all...I am just trying to see if I can find the books I need online for cheaper than actuarialbookstore but am having a huge trouble fining the ISBN for the Principles of Corporate Finance book.
If anyone has the number I would greatly appreciate it. Also, if anyone in Canada knows of a cheaper way to get these books would you be able to tell me. I know that time is of the essence...but I am on vacation and just remembered that I hadn't ordered the books yet.
If there is some strange way it would be cheaper to get the books sent to Japan that would be cool too.

That's what I got off the back of mine. Hope it helps. :)

The problem is that there are 2 ISBN's. One is off the actual text. However, since most of the time, the text comes with a CD and some other online junk, it actually doesn't have the same ISBN. I ran into this problem when I was buying last sitting.

There's some confusion with the ISBN for this text. In the U.S., it's shrink-wrapped with a CD, and the entire bundle has a different ISBN than the book alone. In Canada, they remove the CD and provide the text alone, which has it's own ISBN. If the above ISBN is from is from the book alone, it may be the right one. It's confusing (been there..), best bet would be to email the SOA, they should provide the correct ISBN - the publications dept at the SOA is very pleasant and prompt.

I see some more numbers and now know what you're talking about. Here's what's on the inside of the book where all that copy right junk is.
0-07-290999-4 (student ed.)
0-07-235236-1 (book bound with CD-ROM)
0-07-290999-4 (instructor's ed.)
0-07-235142-X (IE bound with CD-ROM)
Pick what you want...
The one that whas shipped to me from http://www.actexmadriver.com/index.html was:
Text 0-07-290999-4 as part of package 0-07-235236-1
Confusing isn't it :D
