Default Bkm solution manual

I purchased the solution manual that says tenth edition which matches my version of the text. However the solutions most times do not line up with the questions. Has anyone had this issue? What other alternatives are out there?

I am focused on the source as I blanked on one question last sitting that was almost directly from bkm.

Someone on Amazon said the same thing about how the cover was for the 10th edition but was really for 9th... I just bought this and the book & solutions arrive tomorrow so I'll take a look. Will end up requesting a refund/return if I got screwed over.

You get the hardcover, or that paperback Indian version?

Just FYI for those trying to keep costs down, I just rented the solutions manual from Barnes and Noble for $17 (including S/h) with access until the end of March.
(Here's hoping that I pass on the first try and never need the solutions manual again!)

I bought another solution manual from actex this time. It is definitely my soft cover version of the text itself that isn't lining up. Time to buy the hardcover for 300.

What kind of softcover version do you have? Can you post a picture of it please?
I bought an international edition too, and wondering if it really is the same... That would be a nightmare, if I've been studying out of the wrong book!
