Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The briefest of all mainstream calculus texts continues to present calculus as a course focused on a few basic ideas centered around words, formulas, and graphs. The fill-in-the-blank items which begin each problem set test mastery of the basic vocabulary, understanding of the theorems, and ability to apply the concepts in the simplest settings. Some problems are marked with symbols indicating they can be solved using either a personal computer or almost any type of calculator. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
