I ve used this to review basic calculus in preparation for the PRAXIS II Mathematics Content Knowledge test, and it has been a great resource Not only catching me up on calculus it has a good overview of trigonometry, functions, exponentials, and logarith...

Most readable textbook ever Didn t exactly finish it in the sense of reading cover to cover, just reviewed some topics I haven t had to think about in a while Still, quite impressed by how they made Calculus fun again.

I found it to be very helpful for both calculus I and II however I was disappointed that multivariable calculus was left out completely.

Great companion book for College calculus, gearedfor Calc I, then Calc IIbut very helpful with filling in the gaps of the textbook.
