The Single Variable portion of Calculus: Early Transcendental Functions, 5/e, offers students innovative learning resources. Every edition from the first to the fifth of Calculus: Early Transcendental Functions, 5/e has made the mastery of traditional calculus skills a priority, while embracing the best features of new technology and, when appropriate, calculus reform ideas.

Larson writes a very clear, straight forward calculus book for students. The book has very good examples to help a student or teacher explain a topic. There are plenty of practice problems, with answers for the odd questions in the back. It provides examples and problems that also meet the AP Calculus AB and BC curriculum.

Wonderful book April 14, 2011
Had it for calculus I and well I didn't really use it much, ecampus gave it $50 cheaper than my school campus and it was delivered quite fast. It was in the condition it was said and I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. This is my second time in ordering textbooks at ecampus and I am happy with the results.
