5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to find a better study guide September 28, 2001
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When you get down to it, the fact is that seeing a problem done is always better than being lectured on methodology. You won't find a better compilation of problem solutions than those in this book. I would recommend that anyone in Calc I or II get this as a supplement, because it could very well save your butt. As far as I can tell, it covers all the topics in my enormous textbook. There was a solutions guide available for the text, but it [isn't good] in comparison to this. Don't waste your money on other 'do it yourself' calculus books, this is all you need.

4.0 out of 5 stars Saved my life (and my grade) September 29, 2004
Format:Paperback
When enrolled in AP Calculus AB in high school, I found myself struggling. Often, even after understanding a concept, I would have difficulty doing the problems in the homework. I found that the example problems we did in class and in the book were often insufficient and I often wished for more example problems. This book was extremely helpful because it is nothing but example problems, and so it was perfect for me. It is a great resource for reinforcing concepts learned in class, helping with homework, studying for tests, etc.

I am, however, compelled to agree with the reviewer that more detailed explanations of the problems could have been helpful in many cases (this is why I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5). I would, however, still recommend this book to anyone taking calculus. In some cases, the fact that they don't explain the problems is good because it forces you to "work through" the problems and figure out why they did each step and what each step was doing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Use with Calc 1-2 October 6, 2005
Format:Paperback
The title says it all. It is a great resource for problems in calc 1 and 2. I used it because my book (Stewart) lacked sufficient example problems, and this book is basically all example problems. After you get the basics of the problem down after a while, you can work through the problems on your own, and it is very convenient that the answers are right there on the same page.

The shortfall of this book is lack of material relating to calc 3. For a different supplement, I recommend schaum's Vector Analysis, written by Spiegel.

Overall, this book is pretty good. Worth the money if you are struggling and need more examples, or if you would like a challenge because your class is boring you to death.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Practice for Tests April 22, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The problems are arranged in difficulty level, this gives you a sense of accomplishment and confidence as your banging out problems. Some questions require you to use insight and past experience to solve. If you get stuck, you can take a quick peek at the solution to get you on the right track. Some are so hard (relatively speaking, of course), you'll never ever see them on your test, but if you can solve them you'll have no prob on test days.

4.0 out of 5 stars OSP - Only Solved Problems September 2, 2002
By MegaX
Format:Paperback
Its very helpful book for students who enrolled in Calculus I and II courses (No matter whether high school or college courses).
I had Calculus I and II. This book really helped me alot to get higher (even the highest) grades.
But why I gave it 4 stars not 5?
I'm enrolled in Calculus III for this semester. I realized it does not help me at Calculus III as I expected (It's an excellent choice for calculus I and II though).
This book contains a plenty of helpful questions for those students who learn math better by examples.
I suggest every student, who has this book, to keep it as second reference. Students should read through their classroom textbook, understand the matter, do their homewroks, then refer to this textbook as an extra material for solving a plenty of problems.
Solving math problems through this textbook will help you to wash any difficulty/ambiguity away (Sometimes math students don't understand math by wordy text but by solved examples that illustrate the case and make things clearer through solving.) This book really up to it.
Its an excellent choice for CalcI&II just go for it and don't even give it a second thought.

This book is essential for all mathematics students to understand both fundamental and advanced concepts of Calculus in depth. I strongly recommend to the publisher to reprint this book for the benefit of students who are interested to learn calculus better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Calculus December 6, 2001
Format:Paperback
This is a great book for anyone who wants to learn or supplement his or her knowledge of the subject. I have used this book along with others for my first year of college calculus and thanks to it i received an A, because of that I will continue to use it, it helps you understand the problems, but you actually have to think about them, you have to find out how equations are related or used, that is calculus, Calculus involves thinking if it didn't then anyone could be a physicist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Got me through Calculus 2! January 7, 2003
By S.A.K
Format:Paperback
This book is a fabulous reference to problems I had to work through. I was failing calculus 2 up until the final. I decided to get my buns in gear and buy a few books to help me along. I purchased this book along with The Idiots Guide to Calculus and, no lie, I passed the class with a C instead of the F I was receiving. Very Helpful I'd recommend it to any Calc student in need of help!
