There are some great books, but in russian)

This is one, that very useful in russian non-mathematics universities: http://log-in.ru/books/16711 - "Lectures on Higher Mathematics" by Pismenny tells about main topics of math briefly but irrefragable.

If you want to read more sophisticated book and not very complete - no problem - http://www.booksgid.com/humanities/1895-v.i.smirnov-kurs-vysshejj-matematiki.-v.html [Broken]

- " A Course of Higher Mathematics" by Smirnov is popular and refferable in all the world and I guess it's the best book at least because only in Russia it has kept 24 reprints... And there is english translation, input "Smirnov course higher mathematics download" in Google and get result!) I'm really suggest this book for you!

Some info about who was mr. Smirnov http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vladimir_Smirnov_(mathematician))

1. Smith and Minton's Calculus- written by my undergraduate Math Dept. Chair, it is still the best problem-solving oriented book on Calculus (from derivatives of one variable through The Divergence Theorem) I have seen. It is probably not well-kown but it is a great book. And the examples solved are very challenging with beautiful graphics that really aid the material especially in Multivariate Calculus.

2. Kreyzsig's Advanced Engineering Mathematics— a classic book that is very physics-oriented. I was a math major and am a pure math graduate student, but despite the title, it is still appealing to me. Buy one of the previous editions for self-study for very cheap.
