Plus all of those errors we spotted in edition 3 have been corrected. Unfortunately, the practice test is exactly the same, so I don't recommend buying edition 4 for those who have read edition 3. In retrospect, I should've read edition 3 less and a book like Stewart's Calculus text more! Anyways, taking the exam in April?
No wonder I couldn't find the list of changes anywhere: if they posted it, no one would buy the 4th edition.
I am suppose to take the exam in April but might be pushing it back (again) to Oct.
British degree + non-mathematics background (mathematical economics major) = long way to go to tackle the subject test in mathematics.
One problem with reading text is that they are so unbounded in scope while a book like Princeton Review nicely bound the syllabus for us. (unfortunately, PR doesn't seem to be doing it very well) The lack of third party preparation publications is quite perplexing in my case because I am not familiar with the US maths major syllabus. In contrast, the GRE General test has plenty of nice third party books.
