Overview

The Third Edition of CALCULUS reflects the strong consensus within the mathematics community for a new balance between the contemporary ideas of the original editions of this book and ideas and topics from earlier calculus books. Building on previous work, this Third Edition has the same philosophy as earlier editions but represents a new balance of topics. CALCULUS 3/e brings together the best of both new and traditional curricula in an effort to meet the needs of even more instructors teaching calculus. The author team's extensive experience teaching from both traditional and innovative books and their expertise in developing innovative problems put them in an unique position to make this new curriculum meaningful to students going into mathematics and those going into the sciences and engineering. The authors believe the new edition will work well for those departments who are looking for a calculus book that offers a middle ground for their calculus instructors.
CALCULUS 3/e exhibits the same strengths from earlier editions including the Rule of Four, an emphasis on modeling, exposition that students can read and understand and a flexible approach to technology. The conceptual and modeling problems, praised for their creativity and variety, continue to motivate and challenge students.

I don't think I have ever hated a book this much, and I have taken my fair share of boring, dull, redundant classes in my life, but this book tops them all for how horrible and useless a book can be. I would not recommend this book to anyone, especially if you are trying to teach yourself it, the book contradicts itself, is repetitive, and has mistakes, along with being generally unclear and for lack of a better word, boring. And I'm a math major, so it¿s not like I hate math, I'll be doing it for a living, I just hate the book.

Having worked with the second edition, Hughes and friends have taken a turn for the worse. This book takes challenging concepts and fails to provide adequate guidence to solve 'problems.' Many assumptions have to be made and the graphics are poor for a modern book. The text fails to connect with students and never connects concepts. Overall the text is OK for single variable calculus, but terrible for multivariable.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, however, I only used the multivariable section. While the problems are quite difficult, I felt that things were explained quite well. Perhaps the problem was not having an adequate teacher to guide you or adequate motivation; upper-level math is not easy, and many of the topics are not easily learned without great amounts of practice.

This book does not teach Calculus. It presents very complex and intricate problems that could have applications in real life, but does not make any attempt to reinforce or provide enough background for the student to solve these excercises and problems. The complexity of the excercises is tremendous and even the presentation of the material lacks much character: vague examples, shortened and unconcise theory. For anyone attending a school that requires this text book I would recommend Single Variable Calculus by E. Larson, Roland.
