My school used the Stewart calculus book/series for the first of three semesters of course work. I took some time off from school after the first semester and they switched books on me. Normally, the price of another expensive and heavy math book would bother me, but in this case, I find the examples and explanations in the Briggs book far easier to understand. I am lucky that I can trade off reading difficult to understand examples between the two books, but I honestly grasp more from the Briggs book. I really like math; however, it is not an easy subject for me. I am not the person who just gets it. I need careful explanation and lots of practice with homework problems represented by the examples given. Don't get me wrong, the homework is still challenging and requires thinking outside of and beyond the examples. I just feel that this Briggs book gives me a fair chance to get through the homework and it isn't just a bunch of equations that look completely daunting. It is readable and overall, I'm very happy with this book.

Not commenting on the quality of the content, but on the textbook itself. I took a summer course that lasted 2 months. Sad to say this book didn't last the entire two months. The pages at the end fell out of the book binding. At first it was just a large chunk bound together, but then that too broke down and now im surrounded by a dozen pages of a textbook I have to figure out how to repair. Not satisfied at all.
