4.0 out of 5 stars Nice August 23, 2011
Format:Hardcover
I had edition 6e for cal 1 and recently purchased this edition
for cal 2. This version is much better. People who already know
calculus tell me how great edition 6e is, but the problem is that
this textbook is intended for 18-20 year olds(for the most part)
who are only being exposed to calculus for their first or second
time. 6e examples skip alot of algebraic manipulations which
can have you struggling for days, only to find out that you missed
something basic, the 12th edition fixed alot of those problems. Also in
6e the excerises at the end of the chapters will have a few equations and
then kill you with word problems,this is a problem for me because I consider
myself a mathlete and I enjoy solving equations. I understand they want you to be able to analyze and not just go through the steps, but at least put some equations in there. To sum up,the 12th edition is way more user/beginner friendly than 6e.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best calculus book I've used December 4, 2012
By jc
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
So, I used the Stewart Calculus books for several years and after starting on the Thomas series, I am very impressed. It is far more tailored to teach me and my type of learning. I learn much quicker and easier with Thomas' Calculus. I would recommend this book for anyone learning calculus. Especially if you have the choice to choose what book your class uses.

I am more of the type of practical learning and this is more focused on that type. Stewart Calculus books seemed to be more on the theoretical side. Anyway, it's a good book, even if it costs a bit more than the other popular ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars pleased October 26, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book was exactly what I wanted. I'm pretty sure it's brand new or if it isn't, it's in phenomenal condition. I paid way less for it here than I would have anywhere else (and believe me, I checked all of the book renting and buying sites). It also arrived exactly when I expected it would.

My brother needed this book for his college Calculus course. He is going to use it for at least two semesters, so this was a great deal!

4.0 out of 5 stars Depends on who's teaching you calculus April 5, 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I got through basic undergraduate math at my school with this book. It covers stuff from derivatives all the way to multiple integrals and a bit of linear algebra. As it's required in quite a few universities, I'm guessing a lot of you guys are buying it because you don't have a choice.

The book is good, but it requires someone to teach it to you if you don't understand calculus. It's not a self teach book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Confusing to Understand February 19, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The book is required for class but a lot of it is in math speak so if you don't understand the mathematician language it can get kind of confusing. You eventually pick it up but it does take a while.

What is the difference between this Early Transcendentals and that without?
The early transcendentals version usually introduces students to logarithms exponentials, and trig functions early in the text. Late transcendental textbooks introduce these functions later. How they came up with that name is beyond me. As for the 1st text you asked about, this text is only for... Read More
