Very good book  May 7, 2011

This is the textbook that I used for my "Calculus for Social and Natural Science Majors" course. I found it quite helpful. It provides the basic concepts of Calculus such as limits and derivative rules and applications, exponents and logarithms, integrals, double variable calculus, trig functions, techniques of integrations, an introduction to differential equations. It provides a good means of jumping right into the subject. I received this cheap textbook within days. Seller was good, I give my highest recommendation.

Calculus and Its Applications: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


KEY BENFIT: Goldstein’s Calculus and Its Applications, Twelfth Edition is a comprehensive print and online program for readers interested in business, economics, life science, or social sciences. Without sacrificing mathematical integrity, the book clearly presents the concepts with a large quantity of exceptional, in-depth exercises. The authors' proven formula–pairing substantial amounts of graphical analysis and informal geometric proofs with an abundance of exercises–has proven to be tremendously successful with both students and instructors. The textbook is supported by a wide array of supplements as well as MyMathLab® and MathXL®, the most widely adopted and acclaimed online homework and assessment system on the market.

Functions; The Derivative; Applications of the Derivative; Techniques of Differentiation; Logarithm Functions; Applications of the Exponential and Natural Logarithm Functions; The Definite Integral; Functions of Several Variables; The Trigonometric Functions; Techniques of Integration; Differential Equations; Taylor Polynomials and Infinite Series; Probability and Calculus

For all readers interested in applied calculus.
