1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I am looking for a good reference book to help me with the MCV4U course (ontario).
I prefer a book with good explanations and clear diagrams. Thanks.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

One that I have on my shelf that I've ended up with is Vector Calculus, 2nd Ed., Marsden and Tromba.

Some others I have are
Div, Grad, Curl and All That, H.M. Schey
Multivariable Calculus, James F. Hurley
Intermediate Calculus, James F. Hurley
Multivariate Calculus, 2nd Ed. James Stewart

The last one listed is nearly the smallest (Div, Curl, Grad is the smallest), but is the most recent, and has lots of drawings in color.
