Can you recommend me a good textbook for Calculus III?

  1. Oct 18, 2014 #1
    I want a good textbook for Calculus III (Multivariable Calculus) that has lots of practice problems and less theoretical problems. The textbook must have lots of practice problems for multiple integrals, finding areas, volumes using multiple integrals, finding jacobians, gradients, partial derivatives, etc. Please tell me the name of the textbook, author, edition, etc.

    Wouldn't Stewart work?

    Just disregard the final chapter--it's not very well explained.

    Is there any other good textbook besides Stewart?

    What have you been using for Calc I & II? Does it not include any multivariable calculus?

    My Calculus I & II textbook doesn't have Calculus III at all.

    I like "Calculus" by Larson and Edwards. I have the 8th edition, but they're up to 10 now.
    I didn't like how (at least in my edition) they don't go above 3 dimensions, but it's pretty evident how to generalize stuff.
