    A reviewer

    I went page by page and was able to comprehend almost everything. Compared to my textbook of 25 years ago, it was like night and day. The lessons were in a logical, clear and precise order written in an easy to understand language. In my opinion, the only aspect of the book that I could comment on is that I wish Mr. Kelley put in just a few more completed examples. Highly recommended for people who had it years ago, but for some ungodly reason, have to learn it all over again. I gave it a four star rating only because it's just not right to give a math textbook five stars.

    Definitively a must have!

    Mr. Kelley did an incredible job by making this book to help all those students that have trouble understanding calculus. It makes life easier with the straight to the point examples and explanations. Its a great tool to have!

    Good Review

    I bought this book a week ago and it explained what my calc 1 instructor was trying to say for the last three weeks of class. Seriously, this book explained in one day what I've been trying to comprehend about limits since the first day of class. I can only wait to see how helpful it will be for the rest of the semester.
