Guest More than 1 year ago
I use this book in a calculus class I teach on America Online and on the web. For the price, it is an excellent review of the subject. It covers the same material found in much more expensive texts. There are many exercises for students to do, with answers in the back of the book. It only lacks the full-color graphics that adorn conventional calculus textbooks. I would recommend this book to anyone wishing to learn calculus by self-study. It is also a good supplement to a conventional text used in a class. The best way to learn math is by doing problems, and this book has plenty, including many detailed solutions.
