No, thank you.

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.
