This is big, heavy, hardbound freshman text that will take you very slowly but completely into single-variable calculus. It also contains an exhaustive section on analytic geometry.

If you have sloughed off through algebra and trigonometry, or if you are coming to calculus after a long hiatus, this is the book to get.

This is because instead of launching directly into integration, the book's first couple of chapters (long chapters, too) are a careful review of just the principles you'll need from alegbra to get going.

There are even appendices at the end of the book covering various math ideas needed for the study of calculus (e.g., trigonometry), so you can be sure that if you're coming into calculus getting weak in the knees, this book has all the information you need.

In fact, I might be so bold as to point out that a determined student could conceivably skip from a study of elementary algebra directly to calculus because the book is laid out this way.

Also, the book's language is very simple, so if, for example, English is not your first language, this is a good choice for you. Complicated language and difficult cultural points are kept to a minimum.

Having said all that, I should point out that this book is not one for self-learners. This is because, as with any book for children, the answers to the problem sets are not included.

True, the publishers also offer a "students' solutions manual," in which the solutions the text's odd-numbered exercises are worked out ad nauseam, but that comes extra.

When my copy of Stewart fell apart awhile back, I decided to order this to replace it, since it was one recommended by CAS/SOA for Exam 1. I am not disappointed. This has more graphs and pictures than Stewart to help explain some of the fundamentals better. While the content and the layout are pretty much the same as other Calculus books, I particularly liked the writing style of the authors, who eplained things well without being really technical. If you are looking for a Calculus text that helps you solve the problems then I think this one is for you. There is a fair amount of rigor (i.e. proofs and theory) here, but no more than other texts. If you are looking for more of the theory behind the applications, I would try Apostol's 2 volume set which is much more rigorous. If you are looking for a text to study Exam 1, then this is the one for you.

I like this book because it assumes no prior knowledge in Calculus. It starts from the basic topics e.g. functions and develop to advanced topics e.g. vector and tensor calculus following a logical development.
Besides, the book has a lot of computer graphics which make reading inviting. Also, there are numerous examples in each section which make the text easy to understand. There are too many other features and I can't mention each of them.

What a big difference formatting makes in a textbook! The actual content between this textbook and the later versions is the same, by that I mean almost literally down to the word, but the later versions are so much easier to read! I think it's something to do with the lack of spacing, poorly done diagrams and a general feel of text slapped around the page without much formatting. Also there is a lack of questions compared with the later versions. I gave this a one star because you should really use the later versions instead of this one. But incase you can't get a copy and are forced to use this one, well I pity you, though as a consolidation, the content is solid. By itself, I would have given it two stars.
