Exactly what I needed
An Easy Choice

Worst Calculus Text I've Ever Seen
An inadequate text, at best The book breaks up important concepts, like limits, that are best left together and studied in sequential order. Its treatment of other concepts, like the definition of the derivative, does not include enough explanatory text. Some key theorems, like the mean value theorem, don't appear soon enough. The book leave epsilon delta proofs until the last lesson. It is possible, I suppose, for a student to learn to perform Calculus in a mechanical way with this book. But I find it hard to believe that Saxon aids any student to a deeper understanding of the important concepts in Calculus. This kind of understanding is necessary for any student who intends to pursue a career in math, science, or engineering. My friend is bright and motivated. Her son is bright and talented in mathematics. And they found this book very confusing. I think anyone unfamiliar with calculus should not use this book to homeschool their child. My advice is to get a good AP or college calculus book, instead. ... Read more |

Perfect refresher to prepare for Calculus
Excellent aid to the first-course calculus student!
Outstanding aide for serious student needing help! Another particularly strong area of this little book are the sections on logarithmic and exponential functions. These pages contain a sound mix of graphs, explanations, and sample problems that can clarify gaps for any even semi-serious student. This book will not spoon-feed the unprepared student, the student who never learned the necessary algebra and/or trigonometry that one needs for the calculus. However, it is an excellent resource for the student who has forgotten or never learned some topics. I have used the book as a reference since 1982 and very much appreciate it. ... Read more |
