I'm looking for a vector calculus book

  1. Oct 4, 2013 #1
    I'm looking for a vector calculus book that's good for self study. I need to get some extra practice would like something with a good number of exercises covering all the regular vector calculus topics. A book as applied as possible would be nice. Any suggestions? I've used Vector Calculus by Tromba and Marsden but I gave it to my little brother for his multivariable calculus class and I didn't really like it much to begin with.

    Thanks guys!

    Try Schey's "Div, Grad, Curl and All That". It was designed for self study, has a lot of problems (with answers), and goes into all of the details. It has a consistent instructional thread: all problems are posed in terms of solving problems in electrostatics - but he also provides the very minimal physics required: Coulomb's law.
