As I've said, I haven't seen the 3rd volume, but the first two do
not contain any duplicate information. Just be careful if you buy
the second volume that you check it thoroughly. A bunch
(including my first copy) were bound with about 70 pages of German
text instead of the English!<g> Tetra was very good about
promptly replacing these books, but check to be sure you don't get
one of the bad ones that's been sitting around for a while.
