5-0 out of 5 stars Ideal (solved examples) companion to your calculus textbook
If you are studying calculus, the books from Schaum will certainly help you to develop your problem solving ability.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected
This is a good book if you are not looking for true advanced calculus material.This is just calculus--with some tougher topics, but is not a true advanced calculus book (which is much more proof based).

4-0 out of 5 stars A Different Take on Advanced Calculus
After finishing the first 3 semesters of what is basically applied Calculus, majors in pure mathematics part company with their fellow students and move on to what is called "advanced calculus" or "functional analysis". This jump to the next level of mathematics, in which basically students have to be taught calculus all over again from a rigorous proof-based method, is a rude awakening to many. Most textbooks used in this situation, such as those by Rudin, assume that a talented and enthusiastic instructor will be acting as tour guide for the student, and will fill in the gaps. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. This Schaum's outline works well for such a situation. It not only covers what you would expect to see in undergraduate analysis, it mixes proofs with solved numerical problemsand applications so that the student does not get bogged down or bored as can be the case with many of the texts on the subject that have nothing but proofs as exercises. In that way, it is unconventional in its treatment of the subject. Also, it provides more explanation and tutorial than you will find in the average Schaum's outline, and is pretty good at illustrating the correct way to perform a proof. If you can afford it, an excellent companion text to this Schaum's outline is Abbott's "Understanding Analysis", which can be used for self teaching of analysis because it is so detailed and clear.

1-0 out of 5 stars Too many errors
i cannot believe the amount of incorrect math in this book. and that no one bothered to check it before they published it

1-0 out of 5 stars no so good, don't buy this book!!
I am studying calculus currently in my ap class. I bought this book. And I found out there are many misprints and errors there.

1-0 out of 5 stars Should be called "1 Step to a 1"
Avoid this review book.I am a teacher of Calculus, and I am going to teach AP Calculus next year.Unlike most students who need to review, I already know the material 100%.I was SHOCKED by the amount of errors and misprints that are in this book.If you are a student who doesn't know Calculus that well, you are going to think that YOU are the one making errors, but it is the book that is wrong.I contacted the publisher, and they have yet to give me a decent response.I feel this book should be pulled from the shelves.They should title it "1 Step to a 1", and the one step is to buy this book. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Stewart Solution Manual for Calculus
This is NOT the solution manual for the second half of Stewart's Calculus, 5th Edition (Thomson Publishing).It's part 2 for an earlier (obsolete?) calculus book.If you need the solution's manual for Edition 5, order Dan Clegg's Student Solutions Manual for James Stewart's (Multivariable) Calculus (Thomson Publishing, 2003).

3-0 out of 5 stars Not too bad...
I thought the text wasn't too bad, but considering the material until about chapter 17 was quite easy, that is really not saying much. The book didn't give appropriate examples of all the different special cases of line and surface integrals, which made 17.3-17.7 quite difficult; I had to learn surface integrals elsewhere. This book wasn't horrible, but I wouldn't recommend it.

3-0 out of 5 stars could be better but does the job.
the chapter on vector calculus was confusing and the examples were ridiculous in that they didn't fully teach the concepts. if you want a real calculus book, try Anton. half of our class used Anton's Calculus to learn the material since the chapters are in the same order pretty much. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great side reader for a calculus course
I wish this book had been around when I was taking calculus a few decades ago.It is extremenly well written and explains all the reasons why mathematicians had to introduce all the concepts and definitions you encounter in a calculus course.Reading this book on the side will tell you exactly why you're doing what you're doing, and where you are going.All students of calculus will benefit from this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Book For Math Fans
If you like math, I guarantee you'll like this book! The author starts out with some very nice infinite sums from 17th and 18th century mathematics (Newton, Leibniz, the Bernoullis, and Euler's Gamma function). He continues into the 19th century with Riemann and Lebesque integrals, Weierstrass' pathological functions, Cantor's set theory, and winds up with Baire's category theorem.
5-0 out of 5 stars Calculus and the Masters
I haven't had a math class in 30 years.I wish I had this book when I was in college.The author mentions studying the art masters if you're an art student, so why not study the math masters if you're a math student?Sometimes the reading gets tedious during one sitting, but after a break it's fascinating once again.Be sure that a few calculus memories are floating in the back of your head before you start, and you'll be well-rewarded. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars What were they thinking
I am a student and do to me being more of a visual learner I end up teaching myself most courses from the book.I am usually very succesful in this manner except when a come across a book as poorly pute together as this one.In each section the authors will have about two pages to explain a concept in which they fill with mostly erroneous information.They then will have 3 or 4 pages of problems in which they didnt explain how to do at all.I am taking a statistics class alongside this and am having absolutely no problems figuring out using the book exclusively.Maybie the internet material will help a little thougheather way the book should be able to stand alone without the aid of a solutions manuel which as far as im concerned is just another ploy to make a textbook into a package that ultimately costs more. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful calculus book, must have if you love good book
I first saw this book as a MIT textbook.Read it briefly and absolutely loved it.I learnt Calculus many years ago and hope I had this book then.The book is so clear written and easy to understand. I am buying this book for my son now.I am sure it will be a great help for anyone reads this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Strang Calculus Book
This book has excellent explanations, and is well organized.Usefull as a reference, and to teach yourself calculus.I used it all through college as a supplement (and sometimes replacement) for the assigned text.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent text
If you intend to teach yourself calculus, or if you are looking for a text for review, this one would be an excellent choice.The topics are well explained and well motivated by applications.The book covers a wide array of topics and each of them is clearly developed.I would choose this as the text for a class if I were to teach it.I certainly recommend it for those learning outside the structure of a classroom. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars One reviewer said :"by carefully developing only what is essential." which is best thing to say about this book
So far Im at chapter 2 (just finished it). So Im going to update this once im done with the book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Consice
This is essentially preparation for differential geometry/topology.It is definitely for math students (I would say familiarity with calc 3 and a good intro to analysis course are essential prerequisites).It is very consice, and so not easy to read (few or no examples or worked out exercises!).Though only about 130 pages, it covers something like a semester and a half (an estimate... I took a year long course which used it) of material.Nonetheless, it is a great little book.The exercises are excellent.
4-0 out of 5 stars A Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering
I haven't read the book yet, but I browsed the contents and it seems to be at the same level of other graduate textbooks in applied and theoretical math such as those that deal with Wavelets, Hilbert Spaces and Functional Analysis. It seems very strange to me to read the despective comments from pure mathematicians about the "low" level of mathematics that engineers have. Engineering and Mathematics share some roots but they are different professions. One of the greatest mathematicians in the whole history of mankind, Paul Dirac, was an E.E. and a Physicist. If it wasn't for engineering, mathematics would be in the same planet with poetry. Some respect please. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Written with the reader in mind.
I think this is one of the most understandable books in signal processing that I've ever come across.I get the feeling that Brigham had been frustrated by technical texts that were poorly written, and decided he wasn't going to commit the same sin.Plenty of carefully planned illustrations designed to help the reader start from a known place, and move step-by-step to an understanding of something new.Not just a bunch of faceless equations.I think this would be an excellent college text.
4-0 out of 5 stars Very good, but be careful, though
The book I have is ISBN 0-13-307496. It was published in 1974.5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding classic
I am mainly a neurobiologist by training, but transform theory is very useful in visual neurobiology and visual psychophysics, and I've looked at and read dozens of books on various aspects of signal processing and transform theory. Much of this is surprisingly applicable to the brain science area, as the revolutionary work of David Marr and other scientists showed a quarter of a century ago. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I recommend this text for self-study
This collection of problems is really quite good. First, the problem is spelled out entirely, so you don't need to refer to the text. It is self-contained, for the most part. Each of the solutions is worked out with generous detail and the problems are chosen to accentuate certain basic results that are easy to take for granted unless you see the difficulties that arise in their absence. I recommend this text for self-study as a running start to Polya and Szego's more difficult problem book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent companion to Lang's Analysis book
This book is not just a "solutions manual."There are detailed proofs for all of the problems in the book.This book is essential if you want to truly learn real analysis.

I used this text in high school for AP Calculus AB.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best introductory calculus texts ever
If you want to learn calculus from first-rate experts and also first-rate explainers, you will love this text. The authors have gone to great lengths to motivate and elucidate the ideas behind calculus, and they do so in a brilliant and very readable fashion. They take the reader by the hand and explain, step by step, what you need to know. Countless applications from science, engineering, and economics let you get an idea of how calculus is really used out there in the field.3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but needs better explanations
This book was good for understanding the basics of all the concepts, but if you wanted to go more in depth, it was not a very good learning resource. The explanations were not very clear and detailed, and there were also not enough examples.Often, I felt that it would have been much more helpful to have detailed explanations of the more difficult problems. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Calculus boot camp
Each chapter gives a brief over view of the topic ( limits, continuity, etc etc) then immediately runs you through the paces with a dozen or so problems over the subject. The problems are wide ranging and better than what most texts will give you. Each problem is then followed with a step by step guide to solvingWITH EXPLANATIONS! (whatta concept)They say repetition is good for learning and this gives it to you. If you don't know the subjects well and you use this book, you will know them. If you know calculus and just need to be stronger in some areas, this can do that too. If you need a refresher this works in that capacity as well.

THE KING OF ALL MATHEMATICAL PROBLEMS!!!!!!!!!
5-0 out of 5 stars Practice is key
One thing students of calculus need to do is practice, practice, practice problems. A book with lots of problems and clearly written, detailed solutions is part of the required program. Having used this book myself as a student, I completely recommend to my own students. As always, try to work out the problems yourself before peeking in on the solutions.

5-0 out of 5 stars great book
i found the first three chapters of this book very clear and well written. i'd strongly recommend it for someone looking to learn about analysis on the real line.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good book for reading and as a graduate student
Easy to read. My university is using this book to get the graduate students ready for the real analysis qualifying exam. So go ahead and buy this book if you're planning to work on a PhD in mathematics. If you're not planning to work on a PhD in math, this is still a good book to read if you enjoy studying about the real line.
2-0 out of 5 stars Suffers from all the flaws of a 1st edition
This book has a lot of problems. Several sections are poorly written/edited. Several important named theorems are not clearly labeled. Also some of the proofs contain typos or errors. The chapter on differentiation is particularly lacking. The chapter is poorly organized and presented. There is also a glaring TeX error in the chapter.

4-0 out of 5 stars good book...
My knowledge of this book originates from a course in measure and integration theory a couple of years ago. Back then I honestly didn't like the book very much. It is very terse, sometimes tending towards incomprehensible. The exercises were great though - hard. Exercises should be hard - that's the best way to learn mathematics.
4-0 out of 5 stars A compact and good book
I like this book! Of course the book demand some work of the reader, and it is not the easiest book to read, but its easier to get an overview of an subject, when the material is compact as in this book!

It seems that the higher up you go in the Mathematics curriculum, the poorer the books you meet.In my honest opinion, a book should help you learn and understand the material as quickly as possible.Otherwise, you might as well be given a list of definitions, stuck in a closed padded room and asked to come up with all the theorems by yourself.Unfortunately, there are too many graduate textbooks out there written by individuals who seem to have no desire to make the ideas they are trying to present as clear as possible.There's no educational philosophy.This book falls under that category.For example, this book is almost completely devoid of any examples.I don't know about you, but from example, is how I learn.I could go through this book much faster, if there were some decent examples.You can tell me a thousand times what a sigma algebra is, but if you don't give me some decent, worked-out examples which might tell me why tell me why I should learn it (other than because I'll fail the course), I'm going to forget the definition after 5 minutes.Secondly, it would help if there were more pictures.A picture is worth a thousand words.Third, some of the definitions are not worded as well as they should be.last night I spent ten minutes trying to figure out whether the definition for x-section Ex = {y in Y : (x,y) in E} meant that "for all x," or just "for some x?"It turned out it meant "for fixed x."But nowhere was that little tidbit of information written.Ten minutes may not sound like much, but if you have to read 10 pages before you get to pleasure of spending 10 hours with the homework problems, that translates into a lot of time you could spend doing other things if only this book were presented in a manner which would enable you to learn the material more efficiently.I give it two stars primarily because some of the homework problems aren't too bad.If you have a choice, have a look at Kolmogorov and Fomins book on Real analysis.It's not perfect, but the material in it is organized better.(It's not as DENSE)Plus it's a Dover book, and therefore much cheaper. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Not great, but not too crappy
I used this book for calc 2 and am currently using it for calc 3 (I have a test tomorrow....AHHHHHH).I don't really like it.It doesn't explain a lot of stuff in a way easy to understand.Also there aren't good examples for the problems, so you get to homework and you have no idea how to actually do it because there isn't an example of it.But it's not the worst book ever.If you think hard enough you can usually follow what the text is attempting to explain to you.The Student Solutions Manual is helpful, but can lead to more confusion when it's wrong or it solves something in some obscure totally weird way.

I have two copies, because the first became worn out.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Best! there is
I was fortunate to have the co-author of this book as a professor at the University of Houston. The book is a wonderful combination of: 1) clear and concise presentation of theory; 2) examples and applications relevant to science, mathematics and business; 3) analysis, in fact most results are derived and there are problems which enable a motivated student to begin building his/her derivation and mathematical reasoning skills; 4) diagrams. The book is also comprehensive. It "constructs" calculus from the theory of limits, provides the foundation of calculus in the form of various theorems, including but not limited to the Mean Value Thoerem, the Intermediate Value Theorem, Rolle's theorem, L'Hospital's theorem, Riemann Integral, Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Also provided are the resulting powerful derivative, integration and function analysis tools. The book includes calulus of one variable as well as many variables in the Vector Calculus section of the book. Finally, it ends with an introduction to Ordinary Differential Equations. It takes three semesters: Calculus I, II and III to get through this book at the University of Houston. So, although the price seems high, there is a tremendous amount here. I am now a graduate student in physics taking an Analysis course with the great author of this book (G. Etgen) this summer. This is not a course I need, so this gives you an idea of how stimulating Dr. Etgen's presentation of calculus is. You must master calculus before you can be competent in applied physics (or other science field), advanced finance, ... If you study each page of this book and work many of the problems in each section, you will be well on your way to being accomplished in a career in applied or theoretical mathematics. Also, the student solutions manual to the book is excellent and recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for studying for COMPASS math placement test
Although this would also make a nice supplement for college students taking Precalculus, it really shines as a test preparation manual for students preparing to take the COMPASS math placement test that is required in many junior colleges. It starts with very basic material on the sets of numbers used in algebra, axioms for the real number systems, and precedence of operators and then moves on to cover everything that you should have seen in two years of high school algebra, trigonometry, and analytical geometry. Plus it even has a few chapters at the end on solving systems of linear equations and even some material on partial fraction expansion.
5-0 out of 5 stars A must for the pre-calculus student
I teach lots of math classes, and one of the things my students are always hungry for is more worked out examples.You will find tons of sample problems with detailed solutions in this easy to read Schaum's outline.As always, please try to work out the problems yourselves first, BEFORE peeking at the answers.
