As in his other versions of Calculus, Stewart clarifies complex concepts, encourages creative thinking, and emphasizes problem solving. He treats students as participants in learning calculus, and inspires them to focus on mathematical reasoning, rather that rote memorization.

He treats students as participants in learning calculus, and inspires them to focus on mathematical reasoning, rather that rote memorization. Concise opening descriptions, linking summaries, and careful definitions help students minimize confusion and grasp ideas. At the same time, Stewart's emphasis on the creative aspects of calculus leads students beyond the basic process of learning theorems, axioms, and proofs. New to this edition are the challenging "Problems Plus" and "Applications Plus" sections, and a more flexible organization. This book should be of interest to students studying engineering, science, and mathematics.Hide

This is a very complete book: ita has good explanations for people who cannot understand the topics that are being covered, but there are also challeging exercises for the poeple who is good at calculus.

i had calculus course at my university and i had enough material on subject but i still wanted to go through the matter by my own so i took this book.
i think i didn't make a mistake. The book is very well written and there are lots of examples. Explanations are also decent.
i still haven't finished reading the book (it has lots of pages, heh) but i think it is very good book.
Thumbs up :D

Received promptly in perfect condition and was the edition that was advertised. Much cheaper than what I would have gotten from the university bookstore.
