Calculus Textbook Wars

  1. Sep 23, 2005 #1
    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.
