Calculus Will this be enough preparation for Spivak's Calculus book?

    Reading through a bit the book seems nothing like what I learned in uni (Stewarts calculus)


    "Book of Proof" By Hammack --> "Basic Mathematics" by Lang

    be enough preparation for Calculus by Spivak?

    Since you already know calculus, second book shouldn't be required.
