Good calc books

  1. Sep 19, 2007 #1
    my course im taking is out of the calc book by stewart. i have this program my school gave that lets you pick your math book, and work out of it on the computer for practice and extra help. There are a ton of calc books on there but not mine. can anyone reccomend a good one to use to practice out of or one that is simialr to stewarts. thanks

    i took a quick look at what they offer and it doesn't appear theres anything too decent. you're probably better off with stewart. some people prefer larson and co. but I think its a toss up.

    I bought a book called the "humoungous book of calculus problems" by: micheal kelley. I found this book a good asset for helping me to understand what is in my coursebook. However you really need to cover up the solutions as this book dosent offer any problems to do by yourself. Every problem has a solution and explanation attached to it.

    he did not ask for the best books, but asked for something comparable to stewart.
