If you're looking for a good introduction or a review, or just some insight into what calculus is all about, this book will give you a fair amount of not-too-complicated exercises to supplement the theory you will ENJOY learning in "Calculus for Dummies."

I have tried numerous other books to help me prepare for my AP exam and calculus final. My only regret is not buying it in the begining of the year to help me study. It is seriously like having a teacher at home explaining the problems to you in words you understand.
