Need a book to prepare for my Calculus 3 class

  1. Jun 7, 2012 #1
    Next semester I am taking Calc 3 and I would like to prepair over the summer so that it is not so daunting. If anyone can suggest a "...For Dummies" type book which would give me good examples and equations along with ample example problems that would be great.

    P.S. I already know about Paul's Online Notes. I need something with more practice problems

    Schaum's outlines always have a lot problems to work on. I'm not sure about any other source like that. There are a lot of different subjects, here are two that might be of use.
    vector analysis

    A really good short book on vector calculus is Div Grad Curl and all that by Schey
    Dig Grad Curl

    I would recommend Marsden's Vector Calculus. It's a bit demanding though...
