Excellent source for Calculus 2 & 3!
on November 8, 2010
Now I haven't read much of this book yet so I cannot comment at this time on whether there are errors in it or not, but so far it looks good. At first glance the table of contents looks like the book is going to cover much of the same info that Calc 1 for dummies covered...BUT this is NOT the case i promise you. The book starts right off in Calc 2 and where Calc 1 for dummies left off. It covers all the topics from a college level Calc 2 course and it covers much of the material from Calc 3 and the last chapter is only about Differential Equations which is after Calc 3. This book for example covers 3D graphing, Multivariable calculus, Arc-Lengths, Areas, Parametric Equations, Complex Series & Sequences, etc. THIS IS MOST LIKELY WHY THERE IS NO CALC 3 FOR DUMMIES, it's mostly covered in this book. You need Calc 1 knowledge though to understand this book well. Great book should have at least 4 STARS.
