Editorial Reviews

Focusing on a limited number of topics in more depth than is perhaps customary in a calculus text, this volume emphasizes the meaning, in practical, graphical, and numerical terms, of the symbols used. Chapters cover functions, the derivative and the definite integral, short-cuts to differentiation, using the derivative, constructive antiderivatives, integration, using the definite integral, approximations and series, differential equations, functions of several variables, vectors, differentiating functions of many variables, optimization, integrating functions of many variables, parameterized curves, vector fields, line integrals, flux integrals, and calculus of vector fields. Includes short answers to odd-numbered problems at the back of the book. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    not so fast mister!!!

    This is O.K., not great... Some of the examples that the book gives you and works out are actually applicable to the problems it gives. On the other hand it takes alot for granted, perhaps hoping you'll make the intellectual leaps on your own. I spent time looking over the material and always managed to fill in the blanks. If you want a good overview of single and multivariable calculus that requires you to think a little, then I recomend this book. If you must be spoon fed your math material, then no I do not recomend this book.

    The book is a disaster. I had to suffer with it for 2 semesters. None of the other students in my Calc I and Calc II courses got anything from it either, as far as I can tell. I had to scramble and seek information from other calc books in order to understand what differentiation and integration was all about. The text in no way prepares one for the exercises. There's no connection between the text and the exercises. In the exercises there appear some inane, open-ended questions that seem to be trying to make some unfathomable point. This is not a book anyone can learn from. I would strongly advise any student who must use this book as their course textbook to CHANGE COLLEGES. There are many great calculus books out there, on all levels. For those who prefer a 'calculus reform' approach, I would recommend Calculus Lite, by Frank Morgan. For the more traditional approach, I got a lot out of Anton's classic.
