Hello @tenfeettall ,

Well, there is James Stewart, there is Michael Spivak, there is a lot more

(did you check that forum?
 or just post there without looking ? Note that PF actively encourages you make an effort too )

I personally like Mary Boas, Mathematical Methods In Physical Sciences

I'd suggest Max Rosenlicht's Introduction to Analysis, at least as a companion book, together with related Schaum's outlines books. Maybe a bit beyond other textbooks, but not by much.

TBH I didn't check out this forum, and I got lost on other sites because I'm pretty a math newbie especially in calculus.

Anyway, thanks a LOT for your help. both @BvU and @WWGD
