This is an excellent book for a self learner.
Mr. Blue
The use of graphics in the examples are very helpful as well; the important theorems are boxed/highlighted, as are useful tips to solving the problems.
J
The examples are clearly stated and easy to understand.

I can honestly say that this is the best textbook I have ever used in any subject whatsoever. I do not say this out of a love for Calculus, but out of an appreciation for how pedagogically sound this text is. All authors should strive for such clarity.
As stated, there is no text, in my opinion, more suited towards use in any introductory Calculus series, but this text is also ideal for self-study. The theory is presented in crystal clear fashion, and then multiple examples are given in order of increasing complexity. Each chapter culminates with a series of well-chosen problems and odd-numbered problems have answers in the back. For self-study, the latter detail is of most importance, yet it doesn't end there! A companion guide is also available (by Heyd) that works out, in detail, many of the odd-numbered problems.
The figures within the text are chosen well, so that they demonstrate the matter at hand. It is *NOT* the case that there are pictures just for the sake of pictures.
Short biographical sketches of important mathematicians who developed parts of the calculus are included in the relevant chapters, which I found interesting to read even though it certainly was not assigned reading! "Career Interview(s)" in which a person who has a career in applied mathematics gives a brief description of what they do are also included at the end of many chapters.
I have found the overall setup of the book exceptional in the order in which the chapters are presented and in the location of a multitude of important theorems and formulas that are in the front and back covers.
I should also mention that at the end of many of the chapters, a reference is made to a journal article or two "for further reading".

Initially I did not like this book because I felt it was a bit too wordy. But then the wordiness is very helpful for a self learner. The examples and exercises are good too.The pace is neither too fast nor too slow. And it offers interesting websites articles for further studies. The graphs, pictures and colors are the best among all math books.
The only thing, but I can live with it, I did not like it is that the book is very heavy. Well, it really worths the money.
I hope more math books can be written and published so nicely. Studying math should not be just formulars and symbols. Colors and pictures are not just for high school, they should be there for serious math students and mathematicians too.

Format: Hardcover
Every concept and example is explained with just the right amount of words and visual aids. The author has talent. The talent is his ability to pass the relevant information straight to the center of your brain, and the ability to bind the whole subject together.

In comparison, Stewart's Calculus book is just a compilation of information. With each new edition, Stewart adds more footnotes and side notes. The footnotes and side notes really only serve as a bandage to prevent the information of his book from falling apart.

While Larson is presenting us with a complete and beautiful product, Stewart is scrambling to keep his product at par.

Larson's book is the best all purpose high school and undergraduate book of it's kind. The website of the book is great and holds interesting additional information.

Some cons. The book is big heavy and expensive. Some key precalculus reviews are missing in the main book, however, they are available on the book's website.

Format: Hardcover
This book is great. It has graphs on almost every single page (very helpful for the complex 3D graphs in multivariable Calculus, also known as Calc III) which keep alowing you to visualize the concepts. Proofs are presented for almost every theorem, and there is a very complete integration table in the back of the book. Primers for Algebra, Trig, and complex numbers are also provided for those who did not have a very strong background in these areas. The examples are full of real-life problems and word problems.
Overall, I rate this book with an A+. If you want to learn Calculus, and have good self study habits, this book is the one for you.

This is the best Calculus book, or for that matter, one of the best text books I have ever studied. I transfered colleges and have had the opportunity to see other Calc books. This book (with the solution manual) explains the problems thoroghly and each problem section starts with the very easy, and the gradually moves into the challenging. It also works in real world applications to make your study of the subject much more interesting. I give the book an A+.

10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By J on July 5, 2003
Format: Hardcover
This text is much more clear than Thomas's Calculus, because of examples that take you through the important steps of the problems. Sometimes a step will be left out in the example, but usually it's something from trig or pre-calc. The use of graphics in the examples are very helpful as well; the important theorems are boxed/highlighted, as are useful tips to solving the problems.
The exercise problems at the end of each section are never huge surprises. As for their difficulty, they tend to start out easy and end with the more challenging word problems. When I was confused or frustrated, it helped to go back and re-read the examples. The Thomas text's examples were extremely difficult (for us non-MIT math students) and unrelated/inconsistent with the exercises.
I'd say that this book made calculus less scary and much more managable. I still had to study really hard to ace the class, but at least it wasn't because the book was overly confusing.
