Calculus for the Practical Man
Calculus for the Practical Man
by J. E. Thompson
Edition: Paperback
Price: 17.59

4.0 out of 5 stars Pros/cons, 29 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Content of the book is fantastic for learning calculus! Set around first year university level, and explained with the use of practical applications, as you surely assumed.

Only downside is that there are errors in the calculations, both in worked examples and in the answers for the exercises at the end of each chapter. Had to check several answers with wolfram alpha in the first few chapters alone.
The paper is good quality though, so it's not too much trouble penciling in corrections.

Would still highly recommend to anybody.

This review is from: Isaac Newton (Paperback)
To be fair, it is exactly what it is meant to be. However I found it to be dry and uninteresting, and it took quite a lot of effort to continue reading.

Not sure if it's the writer or Newton that is to blame for this though.

Nevertheless it is something that should be read by anybody with an interest in science.
