There are three versions of this book, this one, Professional Cooking for Canadian Chefs, and Gisslen Professional Cooking 6th Edition w/CD-ROM + Professional Cooking 6th Edition Study Guide - SET. Each is priced differently, and that's about the extent of the differences (Okay, to be fair, I neither have nor have seen the Study Guide. It is however just another book. Unless it can tell you how the recipe you prepared is supposed to taste, I doubt it could possibly be contributing another hundred's worth to the discourse).
Cooking is all about economy; you might as well start here. Save yourself a few bucks and get the Trade version. Use the extra cash to burn some eggs and overcook a little fish.

To buy this item online is almost ALWAYS a better deal than buying it in the bookstore or your school bookstore. But please make sure that you do not need the CD ROM that comes along with the book, as this copy does not include one. The CD ROM comes in handy when you do not want to bring your text book with you to class and I believe it also has some recipe conversion software on it to help you simplify your ingredients and grocery list (this comes in handy when you are preping for practical labs and need to condense your ingredient list). All in all this textbook is a really good deal if you are not looking for the CD ROM aswell.

I ordered this book having already purchased a previous edition at a normal bookstore, the shipping info says "ships in 2-3 days" well I just checked my order status and for an item ordered on OCT. 5 it would seem oct 31-nov 20 is a bit more than 2-3 days so be careful if you need this book for school!!and there appears to be no real person you can email or call to straighten this mess out either! like the book unhappy with the delivery.
