Suggestion for Calculus Book

Postby dr.y.squirrel » Sun Nov 18, 2012 1:47 pm

Hi everybody,

I had a suggestion for a calculus book if anyone's looking for a good one. For Calc I and II, use 'Elementary Calculus' by Jerome Keisler. It's far superior to the ones they use in school or university, because if you take the time to read it, it actually explains everything using something called 'infinitesimals', which makes it very intuitive to learn and understand how calculus actually works, rather than just memorizing formulas and stuff. And it's completely free online at the following URL:

The only calculus book that should be used is by Thomas and Finney (not Finney and Thomas!)
