3-0 out of 5 stars Not so good. Avoid the combined edition. Brings no understanding.
This is a book mainly geared toward classes, possibly overcrowded, that have students from different disciplines (engineering, chemistry, physics, math, etc). This is the book for the Let's-get-this-over-with-quickly approach. I think that this book will probably disapoint physics or mathematics undergraduates - assuming, of course, they care about physics or maths.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Calculus Book for "Normal" People
To add a bit more information to the raw data of these reviews, I've mapped the universe of all possible readers of this book onto a set of x-y axes. Let the x-axis run from "non-Math-types" up through "Math-types." Let they y-axis go from "non-geniuses" up through "geniuses:"
5-0 out of 5 stars Best textbook I've ever had
I thought I was terrible at math until I picked up this book for a college calculus course.In contrast to virtually every other math textbook I'd ever been forced to use, this book explained concepts clearly and simply, providing examples that increased gradually in complexity.I happened to have a good professor that semester, but whenever I didn't understand something in class, I taught myself from this textbook.It was a rare pleasure to feel I could learn such a difficult subject independently.I ended up getting an A in the class - and more importantly, I learned I wasn't bad at math at all. ...

Perhaps the most interesting part of this book is missing. For a comprehensive listing of integrals, there is no better book than this. Remarkably easy to find a desired integral, if the book covers it at all.

I bought this software hoping that it would help me to find required mathematical formulas faster. At home on my powermac (OSX.1, OS9.2) I only see messed up windows. Furthermore, the formulas are unreadable, using an archaic font. Trying to save the day, I went to my linux machine at work reading "Your operating system, Linux 2.2.19-7.0.1, is not supported by this software. It appears that the software is only suitable for some SUN and SGI machines. It only appears to run properly on a windows machine.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Enduring Classic
G. H. Hardy was one of the greatest mathematicians of the 20th century.When the first edition of this book appeared in 1908, it was the only comprehensive introduction to analysis in the English language.Nearly a century later, it remains unsurpassed in that genre in any language.
5-0 out of 5 stars Hard Core Math
This book is very hard core. I bought it to help with the math in Penrose's Road to Reality. Which is really hard core. So now I need a math book to help with the math in this book. As far as my ability allows I fully agree with the other 5 star reviews of this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars this is THE calculus book
in a word, this book is awesome. if i were omnipotent, i would make it required reading for all beginning math majors. it is used in the honors calc course at my university, which i did not have the fortune of taking--but i have worked through the book in combination with ross's elementary analysis, all by way of preparation for tackling the wonderful baby rudin. and in that task i feel it has prepared me exceedingly well. i love just sitting down and reading this book on a rainy day, like spivak is right there talking to me. i love his quotes at the beginning of sections, and his suggested reading could easily provide years if not a lifetime of enjoyment and discovery. absolutely the best textbook i have ever read.
4-0 out of 5 stars are you a maths major?
If you are a frosh or sophomore who is facile in maths, and wants to major in maths or the physical sciences or engineering, you might want to choose a maths course that has this book as its text.
5-0 out of 5 stars Mathematics with emotion
There are hundreds, even thousands, of books on Calculus. The good thing is that you can always find one that is best suited for your way of learning, and teachers always know which are best for their courses. The bad thing is that there are so many to choose that one ocasionally doesn't know how to start. I will not say that Spivak's book is the greatest or the worst (as many reviews do), because this is mostly a matter of taste. I will, instead, say what is different in Spivak's book from the other many calculus books that I know. Spivak's book reads as a romance. Indeed, you can be completely taken by his prose, and see the battle for arriving at the concepts in a rigorous, yet flexible, manner. Spivak sees calculus as the evolution of one idea - as he says in the preface to the first edition. And everyone who reads this book with attention understand what is this idea - I will not tell, not say who is the murderer of this romance. Will you finish this book and be a master of calculus? Will the exercises help? This depends mostly on you, as mathematics is, for the most, only understood when you create it in your mind, when you retrace every important step of this human endeavour inside of you. There are easier books, that's true. For those who want just to be able to use calculus, perhaps there are better ways. But Spivak succeeds to do one very difficult thing, that is, to explain mathematics, all its beauty and all its harmony, to a reader that possibly never really understood it. For one thing is to make calculations, learn how to solve equations and the like, but another thing very different is to understand what is mathematics about. To my knowledge, only Courant wrote in such passionately manner - and Spivak is clearly a follower of Courant's way of thinking. The difference between Courant and Spivak is that Courant is more worried about the applications of calculus, and Spivak is more worried about the essence of it (it doesn't make too big a difference, as both are, in a sense, the same thing told in two different ways). There is something that is really fantastic in this book: Spivak usually discuss with a lot of care the evolution of one idea since scratch up to its refined description in mathematical language - see how he arrives at the rigorous definition of a function. He also criticises the notations, and this is pretty useful to understand the concept behind the notation. If you are able to love mathematics (many people aren't), you will with the greatest probability appreciate this book. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Horrible
Reading this book is like riding on the back of a Bull. This book is horribly terrible. It is not an Introduction to Real Analysis as the author assumes the reader has familiarity with most of the topics. There are very few Examples and the worst thing about reading this book for me is coming accross the statement like "We leave it to the reader to show that ..." or another one like "We leave it to the reader to write out the detail of the proof". How can the author(s) say that and yet call the book an "Introduction" when in the real sense they take you half way and leave you there? I regret buying this book. Just looking at the cover makes my bllod pressure rise. There are few explanations, few examples and many excercises. This book is Horrible for a bigginer in Analysis. I wish I never bought this book and I will never ever buy any other book written by the same author(s).

1-0 out of 5 stars Kohei Sato's review is absolutely correct
Reading the signs while driving on an interstate through a large city only helps if you know where you are going, what highway & exit numbers to look for. Reading this book is like being lost in a big city. It was written for people who already understand real analysis. So, if you're one of the many who begin this book with no previous experience in analysis, and you get a professor that teaches straight from the text, be prepared - you will need at least one tutor. Hopefully, the authors will consider writing a book for undergrad students, with more examples and longer homework solutions. Some of the exercises are so far removed from the text, it makes you wonder if the authors truly believed that students would be able to complete these problems. I made straight A grades through college algebra & trig, as well all three levels of calculus, yet I cannot understand anything in this book after the first chapter. If you want to learn real analysis for the first time, do not waste money on this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good intro to real analysis.
This is a good book from which the neophyte can learn the ropes of mathematical analysis.It is clear, lean, to-the-point, and gives the reader a taste of what doing mathematics is like, viz, theorems and proofs.Most importantly, it does a good job of introducing the epsilon-delta method of proof to the reader, who most likely has up to this point learned mathematics as merely a collection of calculational techniques.

4-0 out of 5 stars good as a supplement to the class
This is a book that is best for final preparation for the exam.Last year, in BC Calculus, I was absent for the series and sequences lessons due to an illness and I came back for a test studying through the Barron's books and I had trouble understanding it.The tests are definitely a lot harder than the real thing.I studied my [...] off and got a 5 on the actual exam as well as a 5 on the AB subscore.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Fair Book
This book is very comprehensive, too many details at times.The practice test is a little bit more difficult than the actual test.It is not very well organized or appealing to look.There aren't enough diagrams and pictures for visual learners.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very helpful
I had several sources to help me do well in AP Calculus AB. One of them was this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Pleasure to Read
First of let me state that I own the 2nd edition of this book, and that I am a doctoral student in computational physics.
5-0 out of 5 stars Revolutionize the way calculus is taught
This is the textbook used for the math 223/224 Theoretical Calculus and Linear Algebra sequence in Cornell University. The book is designed for prospective math students. Although the book mainly follows a rigorous development of the theories of multi-dimensional calculus, the mathematical machinery used in developing the theories is immensely broad, especially in linear algebra. The book covers most of the standard topics in a first semester linear algebra course and touches on many other areas of mathematics such as, real and complex analysis, set theory, differential geometry, integration theory, measure theory, numerical analysis, probability theory, topology, etc. The highlight of the book is its introduction of differential forms to generalize the fundamental theorems of vector calculus. The author is not the first one who follows this path. There are many other books written before this one that have similar approach, such as Calculus On Manifolds by Spivak, which was written 40 years ago and was too old to suit modern students.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful precalculus deep inside the functions and modeling
I really have difficulties to understand some reviewers given one star for such a wonderfull book. If you read this book before Uni, you will have a stable ground for calculus.
1-0 out of 5 stars Incomplete, discouraging, Unhelpfull book that only hinders the learning process
This is probably the most incoplete, inarticulate book I've ever used so far in my 3 years in college. It fails to COMPLETELY explain ALL THE MANY concepts you will ,sort-of ummmm, need to pass the class,tests or even complete the problems within the book. Expect to buy at least one other pre-calc text to clearly explain EVERYTHING this book consistently DOESN'T. This book is not a student-friendly one, its more of an EXPERT MATHEMETICIAN-FRIENDLY text book, written for people who already have lots of experience with pre-calculous. First time precalculous students should not actually expect to learn from this book or be able to count on this book as a reliable source to turn to during homework assignments or study sessions... As this book consistently fails to articulate even the most simple of precalculous concepts. If you don't beleive mine along with most other negative ratings of this book, go ahead and compare this book to almost any other precalc text book for yourself. You'll quickly see that EVEN THOUGH YOU'VE PAID A GENEROUS AMOUNT OF MONEY FOR THIS BOOK TO TEACH YOU, this book FAILS TO PERFORM EVERY SINGLE STEP OF THE WAY, PARTICULARLY when you need it to CLEARLY EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO YOU most. REALLY THIS BOOK ONLY MAKES IT HARDER TO UNDERSTAND ANYTHING IT ATTEMPTS TO EXPLAIN. My recommendation is that you buy "THE COMPLETE IDIOTS GUIDE TO PRECALCULOUS" by W. Michael Kelly, an author who thouroughly prooves his TEACHING SKILLS, COMPETENCE and ABILITY TO SUCCESFULLY ARTICULATE concepts so students can actually get some learning out of the time they spend reading his CLEAR, HELPFULL EXPLENATIONS that will actually help you in precalculous.

2-0 out of 5 stars A travesty for the money
The only reason I give it two stars is that the word problems and models are interesting and realistic.The student solutions manual is a rip-off because it does not model each type of problem, nor does it lend itself to greater understanding and clarification.I usually get straight "A's" in math courses because I pour all effort necessary into homework and understanding.I just find myself being frustrated every time I open this book.The examples in each chapter just give me a headache.It is assuming and poorly written.Colleges that require this book for courses in pre-calc and trig should think twice. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Good portable reference for professionals or graduate students
This is a pretty helpful Schaum's outline, in that most of the mathematical tables and formulas that an undergraduate math student would need are included. Material from geometry, calculus, differential equations, numerical methods, special functions and transforms, and probability and statistics are included. Plus, there are some examples of how to perform some types of calculations. There is even a section on calculating compound interest and the value of an annuity for those students of financial mathematics. Also, it is much easier than lugging around the infamous 2600 page "CRC Handbook of Mathematics and Physics." Of course, there are tradeoffs. This book has mathematical tables and formulas only, there are no physics equations.
4-0 out of 5 stars Schaum's Mathematical Handbook Review
The book has many differential and integrals that are not in my Calculus Textbook.Plus, it has formulas and equations from algebra, geometry, trignometry, and much more.I wish I had had this when I was in high school.

5-0 out of 5 stars Invaluable Reference!
If you're as big a fan of the Schaum's "Outline Series" as I am, and are a science/math student (or a working professional), you REALLY need to add this one to your library! Just as one should have a good one-volume encyclopedia (hint: The New Columbia Encyclopedia), and a good dictionary that doesn't require a fork-lift (hint: Oxford Encyclopedic English Dictionary). All those arcane, mind-emulsifying formulas and identities and equalities from geometry, trigonometry, calculus, probability & statistics that your professors blithely expected you to memorize (and which you just-as-blithely FORGOT when the semester ended!) are ALL collected here. About a half-inch thick (278pp, including an index!), and VERY comprehensive. More than just a compendium of formulas and tables, it offers many terrific explanations and illustrations. No more digging through your old textbooks (you DID keep them, didn't you? Yeah, right). Quick! What's the Euler-Maclaurin Summation formula? How do you determine the area of an ellipse? You DO remember those special indefinite integrals involving a(x^2)+ bx + c, don't you?

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a _stellar_ text!
I've been swamped with homework in general, and have been behind in many classes.So, often times I won't have the foundations to understand the current concept my calc teacher is explaining in class.However, with this calc book, the explanations are so clear, and the in-text examples and practice problems so plentiful, that I can truly say I'm confident in my calculus skills, even without any teacher instruction.
4-0 out of 5 stars Harvard Summer Textbook
I just took Calculus 1 and 2 this summer at Harvard. Reading the whole textbook was neccessary to caught up the materials. Although I don't know my final course grade yet, I think this textbook was the most important tool to learn introductory calculus. I think this textbook prepared me well to take Multivatiable Calculus as well. I really liked easy examples and simple explanations. However, the problems after each section in every chapter are somewhat very difficult. I recommend this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars Brief but adequate for understanding the concepts.
This book is pretty nice. It provides you a lot useful concepts with brief explanation. Your job is to study and do the homework to digest that such concepts ( you'd better have a solution book that comes along with it). Don't blame for the book not covering everything as you expected, like other science courses, you should have a fair understanding the basics before go up to higher level.

4-0 out of 5 stars average textbook
This is your average math textbook.I haven't had any problems with it.It gives pretty good examples and explanations for each section.

5-0 out of 5 stars My advice - don't do it alone.
This book is good because it give you clear (easy) examples of the material it is explaining. The practice problems are also very good because they start off from the most basic then progress to advanced. This books has a lot of practical real world problems. Some of the material can be difficult at times, that's why I suggest you purchase "3,000 Solved Problems in Calculus (Schaums Solved Problems Series)" in addition to this book. The Solved Problems Series helps when you're studying quick examples just before the test. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners
Examples are few and offer little explaination.
2-0 out of 5 stars Very poor explanations
I dont think the other reviewers are quite accurate in their assessment of this text.The book does offer many examples, and the pseudocode is very helpful in implementing these methods.The real problem with this book is that many of the explanations of the methods are written in pseudocode.This makes learning the concepts extremely confusing and difficult, as they are written in code.The proofs are helpful, but with the confusing notation in iterative methods, there is no way near enough information to correctly learn what is going on.I took this class in graduate school and never used the book unless I wanted to see some code.My advice: Take notes from the professor, and if you need to code up a method, go to the library and copy down what you need.A VERY poor teaching aid!

2-0 out of 5 stars VERY DRY
I normally do not review books, but I feel so strongly negative towards this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars A delicious smorgasbord of inequalities
Professor Steele has done a wonderful job in developing the theory behind the Cauchy-Schwarz inequality.He starts off with the basic theory and then through the course of the book he teases out the limitless ways the inequality can be used. There is a breathtaking sweep of applications. What is interesting and valuable about his approach is that as he develops the building blocks he explains why or why not a particular approach might not work. I think there is quite a bit of Polya's inspiration in his approach.For instance, he gives Polya's proof of the Carleman inequality which, on it face, is almost outrageously unbelievable ( where does the "e" come from?) but by that stage you worked through the challenge problems and the other material and it is possible to see why the "e" makes sense.
5-0 out of 5 stars at the core of mathematics
this book deals in a friendly fashion with inequalities (and therefore) with the elementary use of convexity and integrals.
5-0 out of 5 stars Erudite and stimulating problem book in inequalities
The classic work in this field is Hardy, Littlewood, and Polya's "Inequalities", but as much as I admire these authors for their other works, I have never gotten much out of their inequality book. Steele's book is different: extremely clear, erudite, and thorough, it almost makes everything obvious. The subject of inequalities is something of a hodge-podge, and Steele isn't able to change that, but he helps tie it together with lots of forward and backward references and with returns to problems after we have learned new methods. A good example is Carleman's inequality (easily the most startling result in the book); Steele provides three different proofs spread out through the book, plus a continuous analog.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book is worth it's weight in gold!!
If I could, I would give this book ten stars.When I first sat down to read it, I couldn't believe what I was seeing.This is the only book I have ever seen on complex analysis (or any scientific field for that matter) in which the authors cover so much material (everything from residues to integral equations to elliptic functions and MUCH more) and yet manage to make the whole text fit into a framework which is relatively easy to follow, even for someone completely new to complex analysis.Moreover, the majority of the many hundreds of excercizes in this book range from moderately to nail-bitingly hard, and encourage a true understanding of the material being covered.I would reccommend this book for ANYONE who has mastered basic calculus and analysis and wishes to begin learning complex analysis and the theory of special functions.The book's coverage of the following topics is especially noteworthy:The gamma function (the book uses the INFINITE PRODUCT as the basic definition), the hypergeometric function (and the confluent hypergeometric function), bessel functions (a field in which G.N. Watson was a leading expert), and the Weirstrassian and Jacobean elliptic functions and theta functions (I LOVED the intuitive development of the theory of the elliptic functions, which is made to parrallel that of the trigonometric functions, which are of course familiar to the reader).I would ESPECIALLY recommend this book for those pursuing SELF-STUDY (although it is NOT for the mathematically weak-of-heart, but no book on the topic is), as it is quite self-contained and readable for a book on complex analysisis.Once you buy it, you won't even think to complain about the high pricetag, because you will be way too absorbed in the math to think about anything else.

5-0 out of 5 stars About the other author, YOU STILL DID NOT BUY IT?
Neville Watson's mother was Mary Justina Griffith, the daughter of the rector of Ardley in Oxfordshire. Neville's father was George Wentworth Watson who was a schoolmaster, but is more famous for his work as a genealogist. He played a large role in the publication of The Complete Peerage, a 13-volume database of the British peerage, generally accepted as the greatest British achievement in the field of genealogy. The first edition was published in London between 1887 and 1898. George and Mary Watson had two children, a boy and a girl, the eldest being Neville. 5-0 out of 5 stars really eternal
This Book is a Bibel in Analysis, in this Book you learn again how Important the Formula ist, the one which you can Modify and change mathematically in order to come to new Formulas!! NOT like the Modern Books, where Axiomatizing is taken as to be prior to the Formula...Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
Well priced, full of every possible ODE technique, and is perfect for engineers and scientists who are not full-fledged mathematicians.I especially appreciate the applications sections--instead of learning obscure technique after obscure technique, the reader can jump ahead to problems in mechanics, physics, etc. and grab the most useful of the bunch. This makes the material much more interesting.The only downside is that I fear I'll wear my copy out, since it's an 800 page paperback.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thorough, comprehensive, and well organized.
This is by far the greatest ODE book in the market. It is extremely thorough and comprehensive. I am an undergrad and I will be taking an ODE class this coming fall 06. After reading most of this book, I am way ahead of the class. I recommend this to anyone who truly wants to learn how to solve differential equations.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Majority Rules
In this case, everyone is right, this is an amazing book.I used it in conjunction with my required textbook for an undergraduate diff eq course.This book was far superior.Who would think a subject like this could be made so accessible?Like others, comparing this 'dinosaur' to current text makes me wonder at the declining level of quality in our education system. Or maybe this book is just that good? ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars It's about communication not design
This book does not cover design of the interface well at all.5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Practicle tips
This book was the best out of several others that I have read realted to usability engineering or UCD. It had several practical examples and stories attached to each topic. Its excellent for starter as well as proffesionals who are working at companies and have to justify several things. Several formates for reports and other resources are available for conducting a good Users and Task Analysis. More so its really easy and interesting to read with all the stories and the diagrams.

5-0 out of 5 stars Read it before you need it.
If there is one strong message in this book, it is: Go talk to the people who will use your product. It's an important message. Software designers and writers spend too much time with each other developing clever tricks, while the poor user, often left to self-train with a poorly written manual, gives up in frustration. The authors follow their own advice--in addition to telling you how to conduct a site visit to the end users, there are clear instructions (based on experience) on planning a visit, structuring questions, how to make the site visit useful for both the analyzers and the users, and figuring out what the user said and what it means about the product.There are reminders about release forms and examples of the forms themselves.Case studies help make the points clear and undestandable. A thoroughly readable book in clear and simple language that can be started anywhere for quick help, or read cover to cover for a complete course. ... Read more
