What is included with this book?
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.
