4.0 out of 5 stars A Decent Introductory Calculus Textbook October 8, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very approachable and well presented introductory text on Calculus. It is written with an advanced high school student or beginning college student in mind. It covers all the traditional topics in a calculus curriculum - functions, graphs, limits, derivatives, integration, etc. The material is presented in a very straightforward manner and it is very easy to follow. There are multiple worked-out examples throughout the text, and each section ends with a several problems and their solutions. The problems vary in difficulty, and many are designed with practical applications in mind. The book also emphasizes the use of scientific calculator in working out of many problems, which is pedagogically a good approach. This book is available under the Creative Commons License through the CK-12 foundation, which means it can be reprinted, modified and resold if necessary.

The Kindle formatting of this textbook leaves something to be desired. The book was originally typeset in LaTeX, and this did not translate all that smoothly into the Kindle format. I've found that getting this textbook on other e-readers or computers in the epub format rendered it much more satisfactorily.

This is not the flashiest textbook that you will come across, but in my opinion it gets the job done.

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid with one major flaw for kindle November 18, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
It's nice to have a free calculus text on kindle. In that sense, this book is nice to have. It covers the standard calculus topics and is nice to look at for a quick review. But key equations throughout are highlighted in what appears on the kindle to be illegible black text boxes. This is very frustrating. You can follow a problem along and then come to the black text box with the tiny symbols and it's completely incomprehensible. Nevertheless, you can still pick up on quite a bit without those key parts. I also would not recommend this book for a solitary text because the sections seem rather sparse. It would be hard to fully digest in a first reading of calculus. But for a free review, it's not bad. (I'd give it 2 stars if it wasn't free.)

2.0 out of 5 stars Not readable for Kindle eBook May 25, 2011

The table and symbols do not show at all in the Kindle. The maths symbol is too smaller to read. All of the tables did not show on the screen at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reads fine on the Amazon Cloud Reader October 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I grabbed this because it was free, despite the warnings about the equations. When viewing it on the PC viewer, I found that all the equations and the graphs were quite visible. Yes, you can see that LaTeX was used to typeset the book, as the original is in Knuth's favorite style with the horrible but free fonts that came with TeX.

So if you plan on reading this book on the PC, it is excellent. I will see what it is like on the Fire when that comes out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Several Mistakes October 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a nice review of Calculus, but it was not proofread before it was published. There are several mistakes, including negative signs missing or in the wrong spots.

Many of the graphs in the Kindle version are difficult or impossible to read. The electronic conversion was done in a very poor quality manner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good attempt, poor execution February 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This has good material, but as other reviewers commented it doesn't have the formulas they are poorly represented on the Kindle. As a reference guide it is ok, but used as a sole resource it would be quite confusing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, poor execution May 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The method of presentation was acceptable, however, in a quality mathematics textbook the mathematical statements and expressions are the most important components. The equations were terribly fuzzy and at times completely indecipherable. Whoever converted this to the Kindle format needs to work out those technicalities.
