Overview

This the shortest mainstream calculus book available. The authors make effective use of computing technology, graphics, and applications, and provide at least two technology projects per chapter. This popular book is correct without being excessively rigorous, up-to-date without being faddish. Maintains a strong geometric and conceptual focus. Emphasizes explanation rather than detailed proofs. Presents definitions consistently throughout to maintain a clear conceptual framework. Provides hundreds of new problems, including problems on approximations, functions defined by tables, and conceptual questions. Ideal for readers preparing for the AP Calculus exam or who want to brush up on their calculus with a no-nonsense, concisely written book.

    WORST TEXTBOOK EVER!!!! - DO NOT BUY!

    I have just recently finished the Calculus II course at the University of Utah. Varberg, Calculus with Differential Equations (9th ed.) is the required textbook for both Calculus I and Calculus II, so I've become very familiarized with the textbook and I can honestly say that this is the worst textbook I've ever had!.. The examples are extremely difficult to follow, as they skip many crucial steps (simply to save on print - hence, money) and the explanations are not written in a way that's easy to understand. Throughout both of my calculus I and calculus II courses I have had to use every available resource other than my textbook. If you can purchase any other textbook for your math class I would highly advise that you do so! This TEXTBOOK IS HORRIBLE!!!
