5-0 out of 5 stars A lifesaver
As a computer science graduate student without the proper math background, I've been cramming mathematical concepts into my brain for the last few years.And this book, every time, has provided the most lucid, digestable and yet usefully rigorous explanation I have found for whatever concept I'm learning.The four-page explanation of Markov chains, pp. 217-220, e.g., seems very hard to top.The thing is, in CS especially perhaps, you learn to use math as a tool when you have that "ah-hah" moment of intuition.When you get the idea of what *the point* of the particular mathematical tool is.Then you can apply it and use it to think about other problems you might want to solve.Math as a way of thinking.Which is where the clarity of writing and explanation in this book comes through for you.Which is not to say the problems aren't excellent as well, because they are, and you have plenty of opportunity to practice the manipulations associated with a given concept as well.I can't recommend this book enough.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best Linear Algebra book. ever!
This is a must have for math lovers. the book has colourful graphs and interesting equations and in addition it has interesting problems for the whole family to solve... If you're here to buy the book for your course, it has the answers in the back for those who don't understand math. Nice book to look at when you're in the Linear algebra class. Pure fun!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Reference Text!!
If you want a great text on linear algebra either for study or as a reference in your office, then this is it.Obviously, by the remarks of other reviewers, it seems other folks agree.It is well written, easy to follow, targets a large audience (students and professionals), and has very good examples.What more could you ask for in a linear algebra text?If its not a required text, then consider it as a supplemental text...if money is available. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars *Superb* Self-Teaching Instrument
I applaud Rhonda Huettenmueller and whole heartedly agree with the R. Orchanian review (the New York teacher). The very best available that absolutely takes the mystery out of this area of mathematics. The sequence of the chapters is superb, clear, concise and very, very accurate. It includes process steps that are left out of many *so called* self-teaching guides which leaves many students scratching their head. Just quite simply the very best book written on the subjct, hands down. I hope Ms. Huettenmueller doesn't stop here.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book
A great help in my Precalculus I class. The information is presented in a better manner than the textbook for the course.

5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to measure theory
There comes a time when the budding probabilist or statistician seeks a more comprehensive treatement of measure theory than is afforded in the first few sections of a graduate text in pstats. I chose Halmos's "Measure Theory" for this purpose for two primary reasons: i) Paul Halmos in my opinion is one of the best expository mathematics writers in history, and ii) years ago I paid $1 for the above-mentioned text (original Van Nostrand print) at a local thriftstore. My only perceived drawback was that likely some of his approach to measure theory may be outdated.
3-0 out of 5 stars Measure Theory -- where are the axioms??
Halmos was a lucid mathematical writer but his "Measure Theory" is dated 1950 and so antedates by two years Rohlin's definitive axiomatic discussion in Doklady Nauk USSR 1952.The attempted axiomatization by Halmos and Von Neumann in the the late 1940's failed and was withdrawn by its authors.Someone who is seriously interested to learn measure theory, with an approach based on the notion of measureable homomorphism, should visit Rohlin's publications and at least one other modern book.
4-0 out of 5 stars A classic in the field
This book is an overview of measure theory that is somewhat dated in terms of the presentation, but could still be read profitably by someone interested in studying the subject with greater generality than more modern texts. Measure theory has abundant applications, and has even gained importance in recent years in such areas as financial engineering. Those interested in the applications of measure theory to financial engineering should choose another book however, since this one does not even mention the word martingale.After a review of elementary topology and set theory in chapter 1, the author begins to define the elementary notions of measure theory in chapter 2. His approach is more general than other texts, since he works over a ring instead of an algebra. Measures on intervals of real numbers is given as an example.Measures and outer measures are defined, and it is shown how a measure induces an outer measure and how an outer measure induces a measure.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great "second" book in introductory analysis...
This is an outstanding textbook that is also one of the more comprehensive books as advanced calculus and introductory analysis texts go.It makes an excellent reference because it covers a number of topics that don't make it into most introductory analysis books.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best I own...
I own books on mathematical analysis by Browder (0387946144), Douglas S Bridges (0387982396
5-0 out of 5 stars The Cat's Meow
As stated by prior reveiwers, this books does assume that the reader is Mathematically mature (a saying most young Mathematicians despise), in the sense that he/she must be able to follow the logical development of any given arguement, be able to 'see' where and how topics are related as well as fill in any blanks that may present themsevles in a given definition/proof.Apostol, as compared to Rudin, does a nice job of filling in these blanks by adequately providing all of the necessary details within a proof.This book will provide the willing student with a solid foundation in elementary analysis as well as the confidence to persue higher analysis.The only draw back to Apostols book, aside from cost, is that the constant Theorem - Proof - Theorem format can be overwhelming at times and cause some readers to cover material too quickly.Despite the book's cost I would highly recommend this book over "baby" Rudin (that is, Principles of Mathematical Analysis) since Rudin is notorious for not filling in the blanks within a given proof and instead provides seemingly 'slick proofs'. ...

This book is excellent. I don't believe that I can find anything wrong with this book.
1-0 out of 5 stars good as a companion only
If you want to test your knowledge of geometry and trig after reading another text book, this is good.However, this is not a standalone book.It offers problems and answers, but very little in examples and explanations of why.2-0 out of 5 stars There aren't enough exercises..
The best and most enjoyable way to learn math is through practice, and although Peter H. Selby articulately explains the concepts presented in this book, there just aren't enough exercises for you to "teach yourself" the subject.A given section on plane geometry will give you about 15 abstract principles followed by 5 easy practice exercises.I have learned from this book, but in order to do so, I've had to make flashcards and do lots and lots of rereading to help me memorize the vocabulary and rules.This book would be okay for someone who just needs a quick refresher, but if you really want to learn the material, I would suggest buying separate 350-400 page books for each subject. ...

A very good book for learning the basics of precalculus with clear explanations.It was full of clear examples of almost all the topics in a precalculus course.Some sections could have used additional example problems but overall the book covered precalculus well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Better than Valium . . .
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Precalculus is an excellent book for readers who want to venture into the Land of Calculus, but fear they have neither the skill nor the "mathematical mind" to do so.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and Useful; Maybe a Tad Too Focused
I have owned this book for years and have quite enjoyed reading in it. I must admit that I have not read it through; it is tough going. Although it is surely a great book, to my taste it is too thoroughly focused on details of pure analysis and not sufficiently attentive to pedagogy and logic. In fact, it is so focused on the internals of pure analysis that it does not even bother to tell the reader what this field is. It does not note that analytic geometry is the application of pure analysis to geometry or that analytic number theory is the application of pure analysis to the theory of numbers. For more on the nature of pure analysis see page 540 of the 1999 CAMBRIDGE DICTIONARY OF PHILOSOPHY, which included an article "Mathematical Analysis" because of the importance of the subject to philosophy of mathematics. John Corcoran might have had this book in mind when he wrote the following in his abstract "Counterexamples and Proexamples", page 460 in the 2005 BULLETIN OF SYMBOLIC LOGIC. I quote the whole abstract because I think that readers will enjoy the book even more if they have Corcoran's ideas in mind--not to imply that I agree with everything Corcoran says there.
5-0 out of 5 stars Amazon, the most trusted
I always trust Amazon.com. I bought the book with low price. Brand new! A very good book which will assist you in understanding of mathematical analysis! Sometimes, if you do not understanding the accurate meaning of a concept, a counterexample would make it easy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Wish I had this in the beginning
This book is an incredible help to those trying to learn analysis.It does a great job showing which "obvious" statements are actually false in a clear and concise way.When theorems seem too abstract the counterexamples in this incredibly cheap book come to the rescue.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Introduction for the Financial Mathematician
This book is, as it were, manna from heaven for the aspiring financial mathematician, especially someone without a first degree in mathematics or a mathematically-based subject. The only prerequisites are a very good understanding of set-theory and some knowledge of the theory of continuous functions (at the level of a first course in real analysis, e.g. Apostol's Mathematical Analysis). The development is patient and there is sufficient help for the beginner (full solutions at the back, and, for practice, unproved propositions in the text with proofs at chapter-ends). The coverage is not overwhelming and anyone with the requisite preparation can digest the book in a term's work. Measure theory on its own is an incredibly dry subject. The authors do a great job of covering the essentials in about 300 pages, while making the subject interesting and applicable at the same time. A very attractive feature of the book is its brief focus on mathematical-finance applications. Most chapters end with a small section on such applications which is very useful for someone simultaneously studying mathematical finance. Particularly, it shows how to conceptualize financial models measure-theoretically. A very useful little volume indeed!

4-0 out of 5 stars fine book
A correction to one of the previous comments.There is now an 'errata' on Springer's website.A 2nd edition of the book should be coming sometime, so you might want to check on that before buying.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good introduction to Measure Theory
A good introduction to measure theory. Highly recomended if you are an undergraduate student in Mathematics or a graduate student in subjects such as Mathematical Statistics or Econometrics. Unfortunately, chapter 6 (on product measures) lacks of the clarity of exposition of precedent ones (what may be problem for anyone interested in probability theory). Read more

This book is barely a review, all it does is state the core concepts. You will neither understand nor be able to use much of what you learn to do in this book, except perhaps the limits section. I'd rather use this as a reference guide than as an outline. For a better outline which presents you with a better background before you delve deep into the topic of Calculus and explains topics and gives you an insight on the theorems, get Schaum's outline of Calculus. Otherwise, get this as a last resort.

I bought this slim little book when I was first taking Calculus in High School.It helped me immensely with learning and studying Calculus, and provided a great refresher come test time.Since then, I have sometimes needed a formula, and this manual has again been very useful.Calculus is one of those things you forget if you don't use it, and I was in danger of forgetting it when I took a Physics class which required a basic knowledge of Calculus.Thanks in part to this little book, I was able to brush up on the subject and be prepared for my class, though it has been several years since I first learned Calculus in High School and I have had little occasion to use it since.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy reading for a complex subject
I've many books about tensors and this one is the best one to start learning such a difficult subject. It does not omit the things that are assumed you must know. It explains everything, even the simplest things in a easy way. However, you should know vector analysis and multidimensional calculus in order to understand the complex things in the last chapters.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great stand alone text
If you're taking a course in tensors, or need to pick up the subject matter for a physics course, you should have a copy of this book. In it, you will find a concise review of the theory, followed immediately by many problems with detailed solutions. Throughout the years, my students have given positive feedback on about this Schaum's, and I myself use it as a reference from time to time.

I loved the first book, it really did help my understanding of calculus. but this one, not so much. downright corny, doesn't really go too much further with the calc itself. compared to the first book which got into pretty much a whole Calc 1 course, this one barely got half through a standard Calc 2 semester.... and it didn't have the strong explanations its predecessor did..the first book showed you the how and why and this one was more like'here's a rule, here's how you use it' ....that being said if you really need math help it cant hurt you any to read this, its just there are better options

2-0 out of 5 stars not very helpful
The book seems to spend more time making lame jokes than actually explaining anything. Also, there are not enough examples and no practice problems.

5-0 out of 5 stars Refreshing
You've never read a Vector Calc text like this before!With that being said, do not even read this book if you are looking for a serious introduction to Multivariable Calculus.Don't even bother to open it if you want to learn the subject in depth.This book is for those who are looking for a light, humorous and informative introduction to Vector Calc that focuses on teaching you the techniques you'll need to succeed in Calc 3, and explaining the concepts in "plain language".If you take math (too) seriously, this book will just annoy you (and if you don't like silly jokes this book will probably annoy you).However, if you are looking for a refreshingly crisp introduction to Vector Calc you will not be disappointed.This book will work best as a supplement to your class studies, or as a light-hearted math read in your spare time.DO not expect to master Vector Calc using this book alone.That is not its purpose.Highly recommended. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great intro to TI-89 and Calculus
This book provides a broad and useful introduction to Calculus and to the TI-89. It's especially useful for beginners in Calculus, who want to learn a bit about concepts along with learning how to use a graphing calculator. It moves at a brisk pace, but still explains concepts surprisingly well. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, except on the toughest problems...
I occasionally use this book as an instructor and I think it's useful to double check work, but this is far from a complete solutions manual.In the case that problems have multiply ways of solution, the manual usually only presents one way, although occasionally it discusses alternatives.
5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect!
Here you will find all the problems with solutions. Not just the odds but EVERYTHING!!! Do your homework and make sure it's right! Get an A in Calculus I and Calculus II... The version sold to students only has the Odds... this one has all of them.

3-0 out of 5 stars Skips Steps
Be Alert!!This book skips steps in the explanations.Plus, when Stewart uses u & v for substitution variables in his examples, the solutions manual uses w & x.Confusing!I spend a good deal of time rewriting the solutions using the variables that Stewart used, plus filling in the steps that were omitted. ...
