Most Helpful Customer Reviews
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 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...
They could have done a much better job explaining how to do the problems. Would have been nice if they would have given more step by step instructions (without skipping steps and assuming you know and remember). Definitely buy the manual that goes with it, which another reviewer mentioned.
