Decent Calc Book - Bad Class September 8, 2010
My calculus class was at 7:30am, meaning I only made it to class once a month. This book was so well written that I received a B in the class!

While in high school I had trouble with the concepts of differential and intergal calculus, this textbook helped me grasp the idea. Although I probably won't ever use any of the math I learned in this textbook, at least I know it. Maybe my brain is a little larger now...

CALCULUS September 8, 2010
I can't stand calculus but I bought the eBook and loved it! I can easily see equations and jump to solved problems since the book is all electronic. It made homework easier and calculus passable.
