    in the old days everyone agreed the best book was by williamson, crowell and trotter. I myself liked and learned from the book by wendell fleming.

    Vector Calculus by Susan Jane Colley is what my school is using for our vector calculus course intended for mathematics majors. To be honest I didn't even purchase the book for that course, but from other students who had a bit of trouble with calculus I've heard it's quite good :)

    In my honours vector calc. course we used Marsden & Tromba. I would recommend it if you are looking for a deeper perspective than in Adams.

    I ended up ordering Marsden & Tromba. I am assuming there will be a HUGE difference in rigorousness.
