    more from this reviewer

    This is the reason I passed Calc 2

    This is an outstanding source of information to augment a Calc class. I wish I would have had it for Calc 1, but I didn't find it until after the final. The explanations do not rely on purely theoretical topics but use the formulas in concrete examples. I personally learn better when the information is presented in a way that gives motivation to learn it rather than learning something just for the sake of learning it. This book does that, it took the theoretical from my textbook and applied it to real world work. I highly recommend this book for anyone who needs a little push to be successful in class, or anyone who wants to find out why they would want to be able to integrate irrational functions.

    Amazing

    This book really helps in learning the Calculus. I have been teaching myself from it mostly and it is very good. Most books are somewhat convoluted, however Kline makes this book so interesting that it flows nicely. If you can get in sink with his style and way of thinking, this book will take you through the Calculus like no teacher could.

    One of a kind

    This calc book is not for everybody - if you just want to know how to do the stuff, go somewhere else. This is very tedious and consists mostly of text, but he carefully explains every concept for comprehension. Some books just give you equations and how to use them; this book tells you where the equations came from, how to get them, and why they work. Very helpful.
