56 of 64 people found the following review helpful By U of M Math Student on March 22, 2010
Format: Hardcover
This was the textbook my high school had used for its AP Calculus classes. They had recently switched to this text the year before I had taken the class, and let me tell you, that was a mistake. There will, undoubtedly be many people who enjoy this textbook, but I say that anyone who is even remotely interested in mathematics will notice that much is missing from this book. For instance, the chapter on limits deals only with limits of continuous functions or the obvious case of single point discontinuities. Any realistic or important examples of a function not having a limit is shown to us in a cute window representing a graphing calculator's screen. Maybe this is to tailor the notion that my generation is full of "visual learners". Or maybe its simply to avoid any real math while allowing kids to think they have learned something legitimate. This problem of presenting very low leveled material is pervasive throughout (i.e as one reviewer has mentioned before, all the problems on limits can be solved by substitution...) The chapter on infinite series is a great example of this. The authors seem to have wanted anyone in middle school (let alone a senior in high school or a college student) to "understand" this textbook. Unfortunately, they shy away from even remotely complicated reasoning, especially where it is needed. The irony is is that by trying to make this text "readable", they leave out important mathematical reasoning that helps clarify and explain many of the more difficult topics. This leaves several chapters, such as the chapter on infinite series, completely useless and confusing despite the authors' intent.Read more ›

My daughter used this book and my son used the book by Ron Larson in their high school AP calculus class.

I think this book gets to the major points in a simpler and less obscured approach. Larson's book is more comprehensive with way more approves and theory that results in losing focus and lost in the maze for some first time students.

In short, this book is better for students intend to major in Engineering and Ron Larson's book for people intend to major in mathematics and theoretical physics from my observation.

I used this book for AP Calculus AB. I never really really read the book(mostly just went off of class lecture), but definitely used the book a lot for homework problems. I passed the AP exam with flying colors, so it cant be that bad! Plus, its a nice little book, so you can always carry it around with you.

The book is being used by my tutee's AP Calc class so it is the one I had to get. It's a fine book and covers the curriculum appropriately. I find some of the explanations and motivations a bit to simplistic.
