I just took my calc 3 final and I'm now officially finished with this book. It's been good, but I'm ready to be done. I've been using it since August 2006.

I just completed the Calc series using Thomas Calculus. In Calc I, the instructor commented that we would use this text and that it wasn't the best or the worst (a VERY safe claim to make). I would agee with that.

I found the instructional text adequate but we experienced several cases where the solution to end-of-section problems was not the technique being covered in the section.

I used the softbound vol 1 & 2. You can save some money if you are taking a semester or two of calculus, but if
I spent one year and a half studying from this book and here is the story:

Calculus 1:

Calculus 2:
Spring 2010-2011
SuTuTh 11-11:50 am

Calculus 3:
Fall 2011-2012
SuTuTh 9-9:50 am

The book is great..I enjoyed studying from it "for a while"...chapter 10 and 15 are horrible..but I finished calculus Finally..
I studied from an earlier version of this book in college in 1980. Loved it then. My prof was Ross Finney (now deceased, like Thomas), at the time a co-author. A great book and a great teacher.
The best maths book i've ever seen. Perhaps, for some readers it may be too long, but every subject is explained in a very .. hmm... explicit way, which makes it an excellent self-study textbook.

1 year reading this book. it was my first maths book coming in uni. I liked it some of it was foreign to me and always will be because we do not do graphic and computer mathematical problems. But it would have been cool if we did. It is nice book and designed for students early in their professional studies and does not have any complicated symbolization like in other calculus books i went through.

Used this book for practice and solving problems while learning Mathematica software. It's very dense and extensive book, covers too many details about calculus techniques, theorems, problems, applications, etc.

It's a famous book, and the solution manual is what makes this book unique and interesting.
This calculus book is a good introductory book for the Calculus 1 class at SLCC, but once the student has passed into Calculus 2 and above the book is lacking in a great deal of explination and has little more value than a paper weight or kindling.

Buku ini telah membuatku merasa aku bukan lagi diriku. Di saat kamu ingin merasa bego, dianjurkan membaca buku ini.
A very good guide with excellent excercises for a calculus student.

George Brinton Thomas, a mathematician who turned a one-year teaching appointment at MIT into a 38-year career and whose well-regarded textbook has been used around the world, died Oct. 31 of natural causes in State College, Pa. He was 92.

Thomas, known as a young teacher for his ability to communicate mathematical concepts, was hired in 1951 by publisher Addison-Wesley to revise their then-standar
