Hi,
Since I'm going to do a self study of socalled Calculus II, I've made my research and decided to go with the course schedule from Berkeley Math 1B. Here are some of the schedules from the recent years: http://persson.berkeley.edu/1B/ http://math.berkeley.edu/~theojf/09Summer1B/ http://math.berkeley.edu/~reshetik/index1b.html The problem is that I already have Stewart's Calculus  Early Transcendentals  6th edition, but the course pages mention that the books are close but have some differences. My concern is mainly the homework assignments/exercises that are in the courses schedule and how they differ from the "standard" book (the 6th edition). Since my schedule is tight I want to do the right amount of exercises, and to do the most appropriate exercises...I guess that the ones for homework in the Berkeley courses are just OK. I can go overboard and solve, for instance, all or almost all odd numbered exercises, but I think it will be too much...maybe sometimes later... So, the question: is there a description of the differences between the "standard" book edition and the Berkeley edition  for example, renumbering of the chapters and/or sections, whether the exercises are the same, etc. Thanks in advance
