Uses applications in science and engineering to demonstrate the concepts learned. The text has little biographies of people that did mathematical things strewn throughout and multiple worked examples. The book uses lots of computer-generated graphics and other things. I would say it is an excellent reference as well since it has tables of derivatives and integrals in the book along with answers to odd-numbered exercises.

This particular text covers topics ranging from beginning limits to vector calculus. So it obviously builds on what was learned. Just in case you never had it, it also covers some Precalculus in the very beginning of the book. The text also contains little projects that people can do to demonstrate the ideas taught.

I got this book for College so I can't remember the last time I cracked it open. In any case, I guess it is good that I didn't get rid of it. The only real problem is that the book seems to be a bit 'busy' if you will forgive the expression. With all of the little images and biographies and pictures it sometimes gets distracting. ( )

Just the Calculus AB/BC book we use at CP.

In my opinion, the best Calculus text of the last few decades. Extremely intuitive and clear-cut, with excellent, logical examples. Excellent for either education or reference. I have the multi-variate edition, covering everything from basic definitions through vector algebra, and wished my successive textbooks were this helpful. ( )

I have the third edition, a good textbook used in my high school Calculus course. At the time I hated the book. I can't imagine why. It has clear exposition, tons of solved examples, and occasionally presents proofs of theorems but isn't anal-retentive about it. A solution manual for additional problems came with it.
There's also an alternate 3rd edition with slightly different topic coverage. ( )
