Looking for a textbook

  1. Sep 15, 2010 #1
    Is there a way to find ISBN number of all the books publics by one company?
    (Thomson,Brooks/Cole for e.g.)

    I tried there website http://www.cengage.com/search/market.do?N=16 but they don't show up for any of the older edition.

    The book I'm looking for is
    Student solutions manual for...
    Physics for scientists and Engineers with Modern Physics by serway jewett 6th ed

    and you see how long it is to put on google/amazon search and therefore it gives me message that no matching items can be found. So I thought maybe if I have ISBN i can find the book easier through the web. It IT a rare book of an old edition.

    I'm sure you all have your own methods of finding a rare book/stuff over web. Care to share some?

    try ABEbooks.com look for the author. This is where I find out of print and old textbooks.

    I am a textbook junkie.
