    I used the book for self-study awhile back and worked through the first 80 pages. For me, it's a good, tough, book. The section on inequalities was especially difficult, but once I got it under my belt I really appreciated the struggle.

    If you have any more questions, post them and I'll try to give you my best answers.

    Very good and covers most of what you need for calculus .
