Hi everyone. I got my BS in physics 5 years ago, and I've gotten the urge to brush up on my math and physics, as I haven't used it much since graduating. I'm looking for a book that I can use to brush up on calc I - III. I really want a book that is heavy on real-world problems (I'm thinking science- or engineering-related problems). Spivak gets mentioned a lot here, but I get bored with proofs, so I don't think it's for me. I used the Stewart book back in college, but I don't remember a whole lot about it. I've also seen the Larson, Anton, and Thomas books get mentioned as "standard" calc textbooks. I've bought the Schaum's outline for Calculus (and diff eq), but they are both just so dry and dull. Actually, I'm looking at the Google Books preview of the Stewart book, and it contains a lot of real-world problems. Why do people hate the Stewart book so much? So, any suggestions? Thanks!
