Calculus. The Classic Edition Vol.1 – Earl W. Swokowski, Jeffery A. Cole – 1st Edition


This edition of Swokowski’s text is truly as its name implies: a classic. Groundbreaking in every way when first published, this is a simple, straightforward, direct calculus text. It’s popularity is directly due to its broad use of , the easy-to-understand writing style, and the wealth of examples and exercises which reinforce conceptualization of the subject matter.

The author wrote this text with three objectives in mind. The first was to make the book more -oriented by expanding discussions and providing more examples and figures to help clarify concepts. To further aid , guidelines for solving were added in many sections of the text.

The second objective was to stress the usefulness of calculus by means of modern applications of derivatives and integrals. The third objective, to make the text as accurate and error-free as possible, was accomplished by a careful examination of the exposition, with a thorough checking of each example and exercise.
