You pretty much can't go wrong with any of the Larson, Hostetler and Edwards Calculus books. I took calculus for the first time in 2000, and I still use this book as a reference to this day. ( )

It's funny: My wife uses this book more than I do. Of course, she uses it as a heavy object for keeping papers flat...

This book is a general overview of Calculus (you know, that class you dreaded taking in college, and probably forgot everything you ever learned from it, anyway, as you never encountered enough real-world problems to leverage what you learned there; I mean, seriously! How many salt tanks have you had to calculate equilibrium for? Realistically?).

If you have one of the few jobs in the world that actually require Calculus skills (i.e.: calculus professor, rocket scientist, new age priest, and camel jockey), then you'll probably enjoy a book like this to keep your calculus skills sharp. Also, if you're one of those weird people (like me) who likes to read whatever he can get his hands on, even if it's a shipping registry or bottle of toothpaste, then this book may also be good for you.

Otherwise, you'll probably get lost among all those transcendental functions. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 061822307X, Hardcover)

Designed for the three-semester engineering calculus sequence, Calculus: Early Transcendental Functions offers fully integrated coverage of exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions throughout the first semester, within the hallmark balanced approach of the Larson team.

A rich variety of applications encountered earlier in the course prepares students for concurrent physics, chemistry, and engineering courses. This edition features nearly 10,000 diverse and flexible exercises, carefully graded in sets progressing from skill-development problems to more rigorous application and proof problems.

Eduspace is Houghton Mifflin's online learning tool. Powered by Blackboard, Eduspace is a customizable, powerful and interactive platform that provides instructors with text-specific online courses and content. The Larson/Hostetler/Edwards Calculus: Early Transcendental Functions course features even-numbered questions from the book and test bank content in question pools.

(see all 7 descriptions)

This three-semester calculus textbook presents the principles and applications of calculus. Topics include: continuity and limits, differentiation and integration of algebraic and trigonometric functions, fundamental theorem of the calculus, applications of the derivative to curve sketching, rectilinear motion, maximum/minimum problems, and related rates, applications to the integral to problems of area, volume, arc length, and work. In addition to the beginning concepts of calculus this text also provides instruction in the differentiation and integration of transcendental functions, standard techniques of integration, curves in polar coordinates, and sequences and series, multivariable calculus, partial differentiation, two- and three dimensional vectors, Stokes and divergence theorems, and differential equations.… (more)
