This book is used to teach Calculus at its very core and not simply mere basics. It offers questions which should be given thought to, and which are challenging in some aspects. This is very important as many degree programs like engineering where there is a need of a very strong base of maths.
This book is horrible!! Very confusing and vague. For a first time calculus student, one would find this text to be very difficult to study from. I do not recommend this book to anyone interested in studying calculus.
Focused on theory rather than the math involved in doing the problems. Impossible to self learn with this book. The examples did not help at all with the problems.
This textbook is very vague and not clear on the explanation of concepts. The preface says that the authors wished to create a book where students could not derive the answers to exercises from looking at worked out examples. Well golly how convenient. It seems to me it's just another lame brained excuse to hand out a worthless book. My advice don't waste your money purchasing this book. Instead go to a used bookstore and buy another calculus book.
Worst math book I have ever encountered...As a non-traditional student going back to school to retrain due to defense cut-backs, I have to say I have never had such a confusing text book before. I am lucky I have had calculus before and this is a refresher course for me. I am a math/science major and will never recommend this book to anyone...try instead Caluculus 9th edition by Thomas Finney...that is a great book to remove the mystery of calculus.
