Book Description

This revision of this popular Schaum's Outline of Differential and Integral Calculus, 3/e will update treatment fo logarithmic and exponential functions, and will be rearranged to correspond more closely to current calculus courses and textbooks. The book will incorporate new material on the use of graphing calucaltors with corresponding problems throughout the book. Mendelson also intends to include a more basic review of algebra and geometry for under-prepared students. This edition will parallel the first-, second-, and third semester calculus courses offered in most colleges and unversities (and most high school AP courses). The subject matter and topics will follow leading textbooks in the field.

4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed summary with lots of examples 19 April 2011
By Amelia
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This textbook was really useful as a supplement to the university coursework I was given, suitable for advanced A-Level to second year maths students. The examples are particularly useful as it gives you more opportunity to practice techniques needed in the exam. Would recommend this to anyone that struggles understanding examples in lectures and needs them to be broken down into more steps!

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent companion to Calculus 15 July 2003
By Sweetcheeks McMuffin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this book to be a very good supplement to anyone taking a calculus course. The main highlights (and some, but few) lowlights are as follows:
The Good:
1. LOTS and LOTS of topics covered ranging from limit concepts to l'Hopital's rule to integral tests to multiple integrals, this book covers A LOT (and even a brief intro to differential equations.)
2. Enough practice problems to ensure that the reader will comprehend the material (as is the case with most Schaum Outline books).
3. Lots of graphs for visual learners.
4. A fraction of the price of most calculus books.
The Bad:
1. The only bad thing I could possibly think of in this book is that it explains vector concepts and differentiation and integration of vector functions and gradient, divergence, and curl, but leaves out Green's and Stokes' theorems (must be covered in the vector analysis Schaum book).
For more detail, check out the list of chapter topics on the back cover of the book (it's a pretty thick paragraph)

5.0 out of 5 stars Schaum's Calculus 4 Aug 2003
By Dr. Joseph S. Maresca - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've worked with several versions of the Schaum's Calculus
over the years. This work has excellent coverage of derivatives,
integrals, curvilinear motion, polar coordinates, indeterminate
forms, indefinite integrals, centroids, arc length, tests for
divergence/convergence, partial derivatives, volumes, triple
integrals and a host of exotic areas. There are many multi-
dimensional diagrams to aid in your understanding of this
fairly complex subject. I did well in Intermediate Calculus
garnering an "A". In addition, the Fundamentals of Engineering
Licensure Exam covered quite a bit of basic and intermediate
calculus. This is an excellent supplementary work to complement
the course textbook and class notes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Supplement 26 May 2006
By Aaron Rutledge - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This outline will work best for those looking for a concise supplement to their course text. The strength of this outline is in the solved problems. The weakness is in the explanation of concepts. As advertised, the book contains over 1100 fully worked problems. These problems are indeed fully worked and looking over them can be of tremendous value if you are struggling with solving particular problems in your class. If you are having a tough time with the concepts rather than the problems of calculus I would not recommend this book. The explanations are kept to a bare minimum and tough topics like delta-epsilon proofs and Reimann Integrals are not explained in detail. For instance, this book will not try to justify why you can set delta equal to epsilon to complete your limit proof, it just tells you to do it (which is exactly what you need to do to solve the problem). In other words, this book will help you solve the problems you need to solve in order to pass your exams, but it will not necessarily help you understand why those solutions work. So please do not buy this thinking it will have fuller conceptual explanations. Its strength is in its fully solved problems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensible if you want the "A"... 18 Aug 2002
By Mean Mr. Mustard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My instructor had a nervous breakdown about 1 month into an integral calculus class. He spent the rest of the semester discussing his personal problems during class, instead of teaching. He stopped giving tests and cancelled his office hours. We had a midterm, which I failed (with a 28/100), along with the rest of the class. My entire grade hinged on the final exam. I bought this book and spent the last half of the year using this book to teach me integral calculus. Two weeks before the final, the instructuor told the class that he was throwing out the midterm, and that our grade for the class would be based solely on our performance on the final exam.
I got a 96/100 on the final, and an "A" for the course. This book saved me. (This sounds ridiculous, I know...but it is absolutely true.)

2.0 out of 5 stars Good for review but errors abound 5 Jun 2004
By bmpercy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A good overview of calculus, though--admittedly--I am using it to review the subject rather than learn it for the first time. Very practical, and offers enough examples to get the hang of it in most cases.
However, the egregious number of serious errors in the book (in a 4th edition?!) can often be frustrating if not misleading. Some errors are misstatements of theorems or errors in the worked problems! Others include mislabeled graphs, incorrect PROBLEMS (yes!), incorrect answers etc. Believe, me, I've spent hours checking my work, assuming I had made the mistake (but have verified using mathematica, graphing calculators etc.) For someone working nearly every problem, this leads to a lot of confusion and a huge waste of time. I estimate that I have found 20-30 major errors already, and I've only finished the chapters covering calculus of a single variable. :(
If they had errata published, it might be a little better, but haven't been able to find any.
Unfortunately, haven't tried other review texts...probably better just to get a real calculus book. I've forgotten the one I used in high school and subsequently sold. :(
