I have always used identical to and MGMAT SC book now tells me identical with. Was I wrong, or was this a typo? Or is this American vs. British/Indian english?
If both are right, then what are the uses for each?

Thanks
If you have any questions

I have seen both usages. But not sure which is the GMAT accepted usage.
