Calculus Made Easy by Silvanus Phillips Thompson
Calculus Made Easy by Silvanus Phillips Thompson
I struggle with books that advertise themselves as "made easy" when the subject matter at hand is not easy. I don't think single variable calculus is particularly advanced but it does require detailed presentation in order to be useful, I'm not sure why you would use this book when you could as easily skim through a more advanced text and just skip of the derivations. This book would be great for anyone with a decent background in pre-calculus that has some time on their hands and wants to work through the key ideas of single variable calculus but I would recommend a more advanced text for anyone looking to learn the subject properly.
Mathematics for Physics with Calculus by Biman Das
3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not advanced, 2 July 2014
This book would be a good primer for anyone looking to start a course in multivariable calculus or physics. The examples are good and certainly relevant to physics. However, the book presents itself as more useful than it turns out, if you already have some good foundational knowledge in single variable calculus and are competent at pre-calculus then you will probably need a more advanced text.
