Overview

The Enhanced Edition of Stewart's Essential Calculus: Early Transcendentals is accompanied by an Enhanced WebAssign course, featuring thousands of additional algorithmic problems, stepped out solutions, and new learning tools for students. The Enhanced Edition also offers an online version of the textbook in the form of an eBook, giving students the opportunity to access their textbook from anywhere. Students have access to the Quick Start Guide for Enhanced WebAssign, which allows seamless transition from the original text to the enhanced book. This book is a response to those instructors who feel that calculus textbooks are too big. In writing the book James Stewart asked himself: What is essential for a three-semester calculus course for scientists and engineers? Stewart's ESSENTIAL CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS, ENHANCED EDITION offers a concise approach to teaching calculus that focuses on major concepts and supports those concepts with precise definitions, patient explanations, and carefully graded problems. Essential Calculus: Early Transcendentals, Enhanced edition contains almost all of the same topics as the large text. The author achieved this relative brevity mainly by condensing the exposition and by putting some of the features on the website, www.StewartCalculus.com. Despite the reduced size of the book, there is still a modern flavor: Conceptual understanding and technology are not neglected, though they are not as prominent as in Stewart's other books. ESSENTIAL CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS, ENHANCED EDITION has been written with the same attention to detail, eye for innovation, and meticulous accuracy that have made Stewart's textbooks the best-selling calculus texts in the world.
