This book is a lifesaver! After taking calculus 2 and failing, I decided to look for books that dealt with integration (the concept of calculus 2). I was thrilled when I purchased this book. It is full of excellent explainations and examples that really helped me get a better understanding of calculus 2. I would recommend this book to all current and future calculus students!
About 5/8ths of the book is a review of Calculus I for Dummies... however, they are different authors so I will not complain too much. Included are tear out cheat sheets on front and back.... however, I did notice one small error on page 1. It states that " d/dx arcsin(x) = -1/sqrt(1-x^2) " and that is wrooooooongggg!!!! hopefully alot of students will notice that and not memorize the wrong thing.... that little "-" sign can be the difference in an A and a B. kind of a minor but big screw up Wiley Publishing. The error was fixed everywhere else in the book but the problem is that the error IS on the tear out cheat sheet that is designed to be studied and memorized. anywho... not a bad book, definitely resourceful. 4 out of 5 stars!
