Issues with 7th Edition of textbook

Has anyone experienced any problems with the 7th edition? i am currently making notes and starting with the assignment and can't find the sections in the textbook because all the study guide references are to the 6th edition. Anyone has advice? What do i do now?

Hi there

I especially found a problem looking for the chapter 21. I got a response from the lecturer that i must try and follow with the chapter names, but that is so difficult because i don't even know i'm looking for now.
I found cos221 very hard and i don't want to fail cos321 because i can't study properly from the textbook. I"m considering buying the 6th edition of the textbook, at least i won't have issues. Does someone have an ISBN of the 6th ed? and how much it is? I am doing 6 modules and can't afford to waste any more time figuring the textbook out. I think it should not have been in the tutorial as a prescribed book.

I have the same problem, feel a bit done in with the 7th edition as the study guide and book don't match up.

I think most of the material is still there though. I've noticed that some of the things mentioned in chapter 2 of the study guide refers to chapter 1 of the 7th edition. I'm just worried about the exam, hope they don't ask us stuff that isn't in the book anymore.
