This book is a great solution guide to ANY Calculus I,II,III textbook. Basically contains all problems which are solved out in a sytematic approach. Lets you follow the solution from beginning to end with comlpete understanding. I recommend this book for people who need help with Calculus and for people who just cant get enough problems, ITS GREAT.

I have been out of college for 7 years. I began Grad school last quarter. This book gave me the basic steps to relearn and remember Calculus. It takes you through each kind of problem without skipping steps or assuming you already know what you are doing. A big crutch for understanding single and multivariable calculus. -I passed the placement exam and then used the book to assist in other engineering classes.

The Calculus Problem Solver is an excellent book for University students or even high school students taking Calculus. This book is clearly organized with a table of contents and an index. It provides an explanation on each topic, followed by tons of practice problems with full solutions. It beats regular textbooks because the solutions are fully explained using words and calculations so the reader understands exactly how to solve each problem. It is also low on wear and tear, I bought my book used and have trucked it to school and back and it has remained in tact. I would recommend this book to every Calculus student and or Physics student as this book also provides topics ranging from first year Physics to Advanced.

I was recently offered a high school teaching job, so I needed to brush up on my calc, and this book did the trick. Unlike other books, this one "teaches by example". I always found that too many college professors & textbooks spend too much time trying to "explain" the concept. My experience has been to skip the lecture part, do the problems, and in doing so, the concept will come to you. The fact that the problems are all solved in detail is also a plus. A lot of texts simply list the answer to the problem, so you're often left wondering how they got it. This won't be an issue with this text.

Even if you understand the principles, the handful of problems in the average textbook are too few to really drill you on the procedures. It's a little like the difference between understanding some music theory and being able to play an instrument. Practice, for those of us who are not math prodigies, is essential. If you are willing to put in the hours and hours, this hugh collection of solved problems is well worth the price.
