Tanakh vs. Old Testament

The Bible's Old Testament is the "Tanakh" to the Jews. Are there Tanakh vs. Old Testament differences, or is the Jewish Tanakh exactly same as the Bible's Old Testament?

The contents of Tanakh and Old Testament are exactly the same but Tanakh groups and orders that content slightly differently from the Old Testament.

The Tanakh has three parts. The first part is the Law (Torah), comprised of the first five books of the Old Testament: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy.

The second part of Tanakh is the Prophets (Nevi'im), which includes Joshua, Judges, Samuel (1 & 2 Samuel in the Old Testament), Kings (1 & 2 Kings in the Old Testament), Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and The Twelve (The twelve "minor prophet" books in the Old Testament: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi).

The third part of Tanakh is the Writings (Ketuvim), which includes Psalms, Proverbs, Job, Song of Songs/Solomon, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, Esther, Daniel, Ezra-Nehemiah (Ezra and Nehemiah in the Old Testament), and Chronicles (1 & 2 Chronicles in the Old Testament).

Why is Tanakh called Tanakh?

TaNaKh is an acronym that embodies the first letter of each of its three parts: Torah, Nevi'im, Ketuvim.
