    more from this reviewer

    I needed a refresher!

    Taking calculus for the first time in years and decided to use this to refresh my memory and it worked very well! It really did explain all of the topics very well, the only problem I had was with some of the explanations to the answers of the practice problems. I couldn't answer some of the reasons why the answers were what they were. But the book did it's job in reminding me the basics for the course.
