I used this for my calculus classes. The author has his own way of going through questions, so it really depends on the teacher which way is acceptable. This was a required text, but for the most part it seemed to be a good teaching. It was nice to get a second opinion on topics and go more in-depth. Probably recommend to those taking a class, because without instruction it's a tougher read.
Cracking read if you want to learn calculus in a practical, holistic, straightforward way. I've spent many hours brooding over the pages of this book teaching myself mathematics. Difficult going--but worth a try if you feel that way inclined.
I like math, but one can only like a math book so much... but, I felt this book (in addition to my amazing teacher of course) prepared me very well for the AP calculus exam so I think it deserves to be rated with at least a 3!
A clear treatment of introductory calculus. Lots of examples throughout. I also found that the Early Calculus Transcendentals website had some very helpful resources.
I don't like Stewart's style. Maybe it's just all the hand-waving done at this stage in the game, or maybe it really is his style. Either way, I learned the material.
