I'm pretty sure if you are reading this, purchasing this book isn't really optional for you. That said, the book is decent but a little hard too understand. Some of the examples meant to teach you calculus are ridiculously difficult and sometimes my teacher has a tough time explaining why they did what they did to come up with their answer. Luckily for you, if you have to get this book, they sell a solutions manual for which I give a 5 star review. If you get this, get the solutions manual for sure. You'll find it under "Student Solutions Manual for Calculus and Its Applications".

This book is an easy to understand guide to exploring calculus. I had no previous experience with calculus, not even pre-calculus. Knowledge of algebra is a must, fluency in factoring, and calculations with exponents are all pre-requisites to understanding calculus. The book does an excellent job of teaching and giving examples, provides algebraic review in an appendix, and provides plenty of problems to work out with solutions. Along with course lecture and online searches, am able thus far to maintain an A in the course.
One note for improvement would be: the problems at the end of each section do have solutions in the back, but these solutions offer no explanations of the steps involved in obtaining those solutions. Yes, there are examples in the sections themselves, but there are only one or two examples of each type of problem and some of the section problems are more complex than the examples.
All in all, an excellent book to introduce calculus.
As far as review of Amazon concerning my order, the book arrived on time, was in good condition, and was purchased at a significant savings over what could be had at a university bookstore.

Are you in college for anything other than an art degree, or just really love math? Do you have a ton of money to spend on a textbook when you can get the same information from the free, downloadable powerpoints with the MyMathLab subscription that is inevitably required when you take a college level math class? Then boy is this book for you!

It teaches... wait for it... basic Calculus! Ever wonder what derivatives are for? Does the question of how to accurately find the slope of any point of a non-linear function just burn in your very soul? Then look no further!

This is one of the most user friendly textbooks I've had the opportunity of using. Together with the student solution manual it has recovered my lost confidence in mastering the essentials of calculus. I've taken precalc, calculus with analytical geometry, found a tutor, took practice exams, nothing worked. I had to change majors and worked for two years before finding courage to try again. This was probably the best thing that happened to me, the wording is not complicated, every major concept was worked out in meticulous detail. The work problems follow a very "dumbed down" approach. The user is not confronted by two or three easy questions then kicked in the head by one major headache of a problem. The layout will run you through 20-30 easy questions as if to make sure you had the concept down pat, then gradually increase the difficulty. There may be over 100 exercises per section, but don't let it intimidate you :)

I recommend getting the solution manual, it works every odd number exercise out for you, step by step, and tells you what was the significance of that step. Regardless of whether you are attending a calc course, or just want to do a little self learning, basic calculus concepts are identical. This is a good book to start.

This book is excellent. It is easily understood and well written. Not only is this a Calculus book, but it has an excellent Algebra review section. The most impressive part of this order was the shipping. I am a Soldier station in Germany. Some vendors' use this as an excuse to charge more for shipping a package. Not only higher charges but the shipping priorty is slower. Amazon does not do this. The shipping was the best I have ever had. I had the book in my hands threes adys from the time it was ordered.

Thanks Amazon

Good book. It has good illustrations and explanations. I took the Calculus course online, which scared me for a math class but made a 94. I used the book in conjunction with the Pearson Calculus website.

I don't have to worry about carrying the entire textbook to class now! Since my class is studying 5 chapters, I only need to take those 5 with me whenever I go to school.

The material is easy to digest if you properly read the chapters. I bought this item used, so the access code was not included. In the back of the textbook, there are the answers to the odd-numbered questions, but if you want the solutions, you will need the separate student's manual or the access card (includes the online version of the textbook and the manual).

Doing the quick checks within each chapter do help if you understand the material. It's best if you buy this with an access code, as the homework assignments will help you with the practice.

I'll give some advice; go with the older versions of the required textbooks, unless you're taking a class where the teacher is so uptight about the exact textbook. With online classes, it's not a worry (you can just search online for missing information) . Good luck.
