I am currently a student using this text for my Calc I class. I am now in chapter 4 and have become truly disheartened in the fashion with which Mr. Stewart approaches calculus. Many of the definitions are not written for students but to impress professors. This book is written for the college level professor. Much of this text is difficult to read, and sorely lacks sufficient examples. The process in which the examples are provided is not linear, the first couple of examples for each section are easy, then they jump from simplistic to the insane. I am sorry but I feel this is a terrible text. I had to use my sisters text to suppliment the gaps that were in this text. What ever happened to good math text that give a reasonable explanation of how to go about understanding the concept and then solving it? Instead Mr. Stewart you are treating calculus as if it was for the mental elite. Math is a fun subject, reading text like this makes me understand why people hate math! student working on his second degree (BS in CmpEng)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
