I'm not exactly sure of one place on the internet to find a bunch of calculus problems and their answers. the calculus book i used while taking the classes had a solution manual you could purchase. if the book you currently use has that option, i highly recommend it. you could also search some of the places posted in this thread.

I just found out they do sell solutions manuals for my book so I'm pretty much sorted. Thanks a lot.

I personally haven't watched the calc videos, but judging form his DiffEq vids, they should be around the same quality.

I'm completely self-taught in Calculus; I've never taken a University course in Calc I.

I used a paperback book....I think it was from Dover, that I found at the community library. I wish I could remember the book because I worked through the entire thing (it was only about 100 pages) in a week or two and that knowledge has held up through an entire math major at University.

It was an older book and was fantastic...not a single wasted word.

I'll try to find the name of the book so I don't just praise it and leave you hanging.

*EDIT*

I think it was an old paperback edition of "calculus made easy."

One cool thing was that it had a few methods that I haven't seen taught in any of the books my University uses. One of them is a method of "logarithmic differentiation" (I think that is what it is called....I don't remember the name, only how to do it) that makes any difficult derivative involving powers nothing but an algebraic manipulation.

I later found out that Richard Feynman explains the method in the "Physics tips" mini-book of his Feynman lectures series.

I've taken enough math courses to be a math major and through all of it, I still feel most confident differentiating functions. If any differential looks difficult, I can revert back to that method and know I'll get the correct answer (although it may have superfluous terms that can be canceled out).

Any more info on this? I constantly get stuck on those. I think I may be logaphobic. :)

As for the thread starter....this site has helped me tremendously with my calculus class, sometimes moreso than the actual professor does. It's in the correct order as well.
