"Early Trancedentals" vs "Calculus" by John Stewart
Hi, a friend is offering to give me "Calculus" by John Stewart, I just wanted to know whether there was a big differance between this book and "Calculus:Early Transcendentals"(Which I might be able to get)... I know that early Transcendentals introduces e and logarithm's etc sooner, but will I get the same info out of both books? This might not be the right forum for this but I figured that since they are both fairly popular calculus text's, someone here might know. Anyways, thanks!

John Stewart is a comedian; I think you mean James Stewart.

I was under the impression that it's mostly just a rearrangement of the same content. I've not actually compared them, though.

Aren't they both by James Stewart (or in part by)?

yes, they are both by james stewart, and likely the content is identical but just presented in a different order.

I have Calc ET by James Stewart. It's a good book. I still use it sometimes, because it has decent explanations. It's much better than my Diff Eq's book and Linear Algebra books were (with respect to what they are supposed to teach AND for the parts that overlap).

I find myself looking back to my ET once in a while for my electrodynamics class
