  • Get a solid foundation right from the start with a review of algebra


  • Master one idea per section -- develop complete, comfortable understanding of a topic before proceeding to the next


  • Find a well-explained definition of the derivative and its properties; instantaneous rates of change; the power, product, quotient, and chain rules; and layering different formulas


  • Learn methods for maximizing revenue and profit... minimizing cost... and solving other optimizing problems


  • See how to use calculus to sketch graphs


  • Understand implicit differentiation, rational functions, exponents, and logarithm functions -- learn how to use log properties to simplify differentiation


  • Painlessly learn integration formulas and techniques and applications of the integral


  • Take a "final exam" and grade it yourself!

    Solid review book

    I found this book really helpful. I needed a review before I started my MBA program, and I found the book pithy and understandable.
