In all my 29 years teaching undergraduates, I have encountered few books as complete and well done as Stewart's. Every topic is first presented theoretically AND THEN illustrated through numerous, detailed and completely explained examples. Unlike most newer math texts, Stewart never relies on fancy pictures at the expense of concrete explanation, and unlike older books, doesn't just present theory and let the student attempt to figure out the problems (like Erwin Kreyszig does). A fine book!

Format: Hardcover
I have used this as a supplementary text in teaching calculus and have found it to be an excellent personal resource. The author's manner of explaining is delightfully clear. Stewart doesn't hesitate to expand his explanations, but he doesn't do it simply for effect: his words clearly help the reader to understand the concept.
I particularly appreciate Stewart's use of graphics that can be understood without a great deal of technology. While this text can certainly be used in a technology-rich setting, it doesn't need either a computer lab or a graphing calculator to benefit from the explanations, the development, and the opportunities for skill-building or exploration that Stewart provides. I like it very much.

I have read many calculus text and I must say this is one of the best. It helps prepare one for courses in physics and more advanced mathematics courses. I am so glad to see that Stewart hasn't been corrupted by the so called reformed movement.

If money is most of your concern, I say don't buy this book, because you will love it so much that you will never wanna sell it out after you finish your calculus class. And no, I'm NOT exaggerating. This book is so clearly written that I never took lecture notes in my three calculus courses becuase I just read the book and do the exercises that come along with it. There're so many other good things I can say about this book, but I'll just say I honestly recommend it to everyone.

With loads of rigorous, lucidly-explained, meaningful examples and proofs, this is the perfect book for the first, second, and third semesters of calculus.
There are several excercises at the end of every section; they progressively increase in difficulty. Examples and proofs in the section are very helpful to solve these.
An outstanding tool to master your skills at calculus.

I found this book to be a gem. Topics are discussed clearly and the illustrations are fantastic. I found the examples very useful and cogent. Of the 15 other calculus books I own this one's my favorite. Well worth the price!!!!!
