5.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction, August 26, 2002

This review is from: How to Ace the Rest of Calculus: The Streetwise Guide, Including MultiVariable Calculus (How to Ace S) (Paperback)
This book is very strong (10 out of 10) for Calculus II, namely in the areas of indeterminant forms and improper integrals, polar coordinates, sequences and series, vectors, parametric coordinates, and graphing. It is pretty strong (9/10) in the areas of partial derivatives and integration of many variables. In vector fields, "How to Ace the Rest of Calculus" is sketchy. It covers divergence and curl well, as well as the basics about vector fields. However, the book does not do very well (6/10) in explaining the finer points in vector fields, such as Line and Surface Integrals, Green's Theorem, and Stoke's Theorems, in which more examples would be useful. If a problem arises in line or surface integrals (including Green's and Stoke's Theorems), don't look to this book to clear it up.
I would recommend this book purely as the authors intended, an introduction--nothing more and nothing less.
