Hello(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I want to buy a somewhat advanced calculus textbook to independently study from. The text doesnt need to be too pure and rigorous, but it should be more so than an engineering math text would be because I want to eventually get into theoretical physics, and I dont want to find out that I have learned stuff only half-assed or somewhat incorrectly.

Do y'all have any recommendations or definite no-no's on what to get?

I have been looking at Advanced Calculus 5/e by Wilfred Kaplan

and at Advanced Calculus 3/e by A.E. Taylor and W.R. Mann.

Does anyone have any experience with either of these? Is one better than the other?

Kaplans book seems to cover a massive amount so I worried a bit about how detailed it is, but it may be fine.

If you have info at all I would appreciate it,

Thanks

Jon
