What do you guys think about Calculus by Shlomo Sternberg? IS this a good combination to learn calculus thoroughly:

Sternberg + Thomas/Finney 8th Edition
Widder + Courant(vol 1)
Courant + Courant (both volumes)
Apostol(vol 1) + Courant(vol 2)

Which one would you choose? I am thinking about the first one, because it has two different types of textbooks.
