If you are inquisitive, sometimes, along the way, you might have an idea about something and want to test it out; for this I recommend either alpha.wolfram.com or Mathematica. You could use a graphing calculator instead of these, but Mathematica is extremely powerful. If you're not ready to buy Mathematica, alpha.wolfram.com is an excellent substitute.
The one flaw in this book that I suspect many books share is the fragmented way in which it approaches integration techniques. The books teaches around 10 methods for integration, and it's difficult to remember them all. However, I am not sure what could be done to improve this, so I don't deduct anything for this.
A great feature of the book is that towards the latter part of the exercises, you are generally forced to reuse old skills that you may have started to forget. For instance, you may be working on integration techniques but then have to find the surface area of a solid of revolution, forcing you to recall how to set up that integral.
Finally, I'll say that I'm slightly prejudiced, because I learned calculus from this book (or one edition earlier) years ago.
By the way, the companion's books written by James E. Ward, are also great books. They take the reader into greater depth in understanding Anton's examples and explanations. These books are money well invested if you are serious about learning calculus, over time they will always have a special place in your library.
It is always difficult for 3-semester or 4-quarter courses to decide on a sequence of topics. Anton's choices in the fifth edition are different from what I would prefer, but they are acceptable to many programs. Regardless, he is again strong on the many ways he encourages and develops his readers' intuitive understanding of fundamental calculus ideas. My own students have actually come to believe that they can READ a calculus text because of Howard Anton.
I strongly recommend the Kindle version (which only works on the iPad or computer please note) as it is a fascimile of the written book but without the weight. I have an ancient hard copy by my bed as well...
No big textbook for maths is perfect but I rarely get frustrated with this one, it would be my recommendation after I have been trying a few.
