    Not a Good Book. Not Recommended at all.

    1. Spends too much time on social relations about students to professors and other students rather than focus on the mathematics.
    2. Formulas are small and difficult to see, very distracting.
    3. Worst of all, e-book only goes to page 74 (attempts to turn the page and advance will not work, gives an error message that the activity reader is not responding). so the last 1/3 of the book is really not available.
    4. There is some calculus value, but overall not a good book.
