Good book about Vector Calculus?
I'm studying Vector Calculus right now, and I'll have a test about Coordinate Transformation soon. But the book my teacher recommended (Mathematical Methods for Physicists - Arfken) is way too hard to understand this subject. Does anyone know any good material about this that I can find on internet?

For something more intuitive I would recommend the book "Div, Grad, Curl and all That". If you are at a university I think your library should have this book.
Div, grad, curl, and all that : an informal text on vector calculus / H.M. Schey
Published New York : W.W. Norton, c1992
Not sure if there are newer versions, but this one definitely exists.

I just need to have an idea of how, given a transformation, I find a new basis, a normalized basis, the displacement, gradient, the volume in the new basis... This kind of thing.
If anyone else knows any other book, please tell me, it would help me a lot (:
