This international version seems to include the new chapters that were added since the 3rd edition but the end of chapter questions were not updated. I noticed this when my Prof assigned chapter 1 question 20 to us and in this book, chapter 1 only has 15 questions.

The "BOOK" is an excellent compendium of useful information. Most of the pedigogical information you will actually use as a career chemical engineer can be found in this book. Very practical. That being said. pay the extra money and get the hardback. Do not get the kindle it is worthless. As with any textbook, kindle is difficult to navigate.

This 'yellow series' as my class called it is a good set of chem e texts. This text book is just as good as any I've seen, and better than some newer texts. Will be keeping around for quite a while, I've brought it to my office now that I've finished school and started actually working. Works decently as a reference material.

I wish that I had had this book earlier on in my engineering career! We were required it only in my last semester as a ChemE, but we really should have had it since our Sophomore year when our designing classes began.

Turton's book provides a good overview of process design and includes both CAPCOST, Turton's estimation program, and more than a dozen chemical unit examples. The book covers flowsheet layout, simulation, estimation of operating and capital costs and profitability analysis (ROI or NPV). It then delves into advanced topics like process optimization, dynamic simulation, process trouble shooting and debottlenecking. A great book for CAPCOST alone.

Is a very nice book, nevertheless solution to the problems, are quite complicated. The editorial do not provide a solution manual to the professor as they say to do it. I'm going to use it to consult some aspects, but i wont adopt this book to my course

I really liked this book. The Examples are very comprehensive and the problems are challenging. It would have helped if some of the answers to the problems were included, because it can get very confusing at times. But overall, a good purchase.
