Main Question or Discussion Point

Is it worth printing the book by Strang? I already have Stewart, but it's always nice to have more than one text if possible. How would you compare Strang with Stewart?

I'd like to know this too. Is it worth going through the Strang book (which is online for free) to pick up on anything I haven't learnt from my class?

I'm currently doing all of Stewart's problems ... but Strang's book seems a little more in-depth and old-school which I like.

I started with Strang and then got Stewart. Strang is good for the basics but Stewart is like double the length, I found Stewart to be a great supplementation, but it is expensive.

So how would you compare the 2? You only mentioned Stewart is double the length and a good supplementation. Are you saying that Strang is more in-depth? I already have Stewart but I can print for free at work, just not sure if it's worth the time.

If you want a different outlook, then I say print Strang, it's always good to get multiple perspectives.

I already have another Calculus text, by Spivak. I want a plug-and-chug book. Which is better and harder in terms of problems and computing, Stewart or Strang?
