Format: Paperback
If there was a way to give this book zero stars, I definitely would. I don't know how, but somehow this book was worse than both my calculus 1 and calculus 2 professors combined. Every time I opened this book, a part of me died. This book will literally crush your self esteem, and any willpower and motivation you have to do well in a calculus class ever again. The examples don't help you understand anything. It literally just gives you the example problem, skips the steps you need to actually know, and give you an answer. Ok, cool thank you so much for that amazing and in depth walk through.

I passed both semesters, by the grace of the calculus gods (bless those gods)

To summarize: This book will make you feel like an incompetent failure, have you crying everyday wondering what you did wrong to have this as the required course text, make you never want to take a math class ever again, and have you reevaluating your career goals.

This book teaches mostly by example and does not explain concepts that well. Either way, it was a book I needed for college and you probably need it too so just make sure you understand whats going on with the topics because the book isn't bery go at explaining that.

Worst math tb I have ever had! Way too wordy, zero visuals, and when it it explain something it did it in the most round about/ complicated way it could. You cant use this tb, it is only good for prac probs and that is it. Should never be used. too bad this is the required text for calc 1 and 2, so I have to suffer with this trash for a whole year instead of just one semester.

It gives limited explanations and simpler examples than those that were on my exams. Really couldn't learn much from this book.

Great text! However practice problems aren't quite as balanced and challenging as I would prefer coming from MML (Thomas Calculus).

Not recommended unless required by professor. Avoid it since this book doesn't explain things comprehensively.
