Calculus / Edition 6

Stewart's CALCULUS, FOURTH EDITION reflects the same old-world dedication to excellence that characterized the first three editions. It has been revised with dedication, precision, and patient care to further emphasize conceptual understanding.
A phenomenon of the Stewart success is the texts' use in such a wide variety of colleges and universities throughout the world. Just as he teaches to every student in his classes from the most unprepared to the most mathematically gifted, Stewart writes to a range of students - adding the explanations that make ideas come alive as well as the problems that challenge. Stewart's heuristic examples reveal calculus to students. His examples stand out because they are not just models for problem solving or a means of demonstrating techniques - they also encourage students to develop an analytic view of the subject.

I'm a student about 3/4 of the way through this text.. it's really good for practice problems, Stewart is obviously a very brilliant guy who can come up with some problems that are so elegant that you can't help but grin when you finish! But the lessons and examples are lacking and it can take hours to figure out what he's trying to do. It's become a classic line before class- 'Hey, do you know what he did to get from here to here?' Go with a different text if you can, or if you're teaching yourself.

Calculus isn't everyone's favorite but this is a highly useful book if you are taking calculus for the first time or just reviewing for graduate work.
