4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jose Miguel Morales Elox on August 24, 2010
Format: Hardcover
My experience with this book has been very satisfactory. I used this text to follow MIT OCW's 18.01, Calculus I, and I recommend it for a number of reasons: the explanations are clear and concise, the graphics are unbetterable, and the exercises are graded, so you can focus on building technique, understanding theory or working applications. The proofs are clear and where the math needed is too advanced, Thomas clearly states so, so when you do take more advanced courses, you'll know what gaps you need to fill in.

This is a great book for AP Calc or freshman calculus in the sciences and engineerings.

8 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Wu Bing on August 12, 2009
Format: Hardcover
This book should be called "Analysis" rather than the old name of Calculus, because it covers more than the classical Newton /Leibniz Calculus. I am impressed that the book starts right from the begining Chap 2 on rigourous epsilon-delta Analysis, and it explains to undergrads epsilon-delta is not to find Limit but to rigourously prove its existence. It would be ideal to write a section or a note to explain why Newton / Leibniz Calculus was not rigourous, hence the 'invention' of Cauchy /Wierestrass epsilon-delta analysis.

Unfortunately it does not use the same epsilon-delta to define Continuity of Functions, but uses a weaker approach with "Limit". This is not the Cauchy-Wierestrass original rigourous definition of Continuity.

I understand the author writes this book for engineers (MIT is engineering university), but the rigor of Math cannot be compromised at the expense of practicality.

I specifically bought this book because it is clear for an entry-level Calc book. The first couple of chapters are great for those new to Calculus concepts. Many Calc I classes talk about it in abstract terms, or don't start with the basics of Calc and then work from there. For this reason, this book is good at explaining. But with any math higher than College Algebra, you have to work at it to understand it. I will admit later versions of this same book improve upon this version. Good basic book.

I have used this book for calculus 1 - 3 and I must say I was very disappointed. The homework problems for this book are ridiculously difficult. The author of this book somehow made simple concepts of calculus seem impossible. If you are using this book and have never taken a calculus course, then be prepared to struggle.

This book maintains clean condition inside although the book's cover is a little bit frayed. No sketched, no tore, no dirty. I am satisfied.
