Item Description...
Quick Calculus 2nd Edition A Self-Teaching Guide Calculus is essential for understanding subjects ranging from physics and chemistry to economics and ecology. Nevertheless, countless students and others who need quantitative skills limit their futures by avoiding this subject like the plague. Maybe that's why the first edition of this self-teaching guide sold over 250,000 copies. Quick Calculus, Second Edition continues to teach the elementary techniques of differential and integral calculus quickly and painlessly. Your "calculus anxiety" will rapidly disappear as you work at your own pace on a series of carefully selected work problems. Each correct answer to a work problem leads to new material, while an incorrect response is followed by additional explanations and reviews. This updated edition incorporates the use of calculators and features more applications and examples. ."makes it possible for a person to delve into the mystery of calculus without being mystified." --Physics Teacher

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A classic still in print for good reasons  Sep 15, 2007
Like many of the other reviewers, this book was invaluable for me at an earlier time. It teaches in small, digestable bites, and provides reinforcement of what it teaches. A person MIGHT do as well with a conventional problem book, but only with a great deal of discipline.
Great refresher book  Sep 7, 2007
This is a great book for refreshing your knowledge of basic calc. It is very fast to go over. It teaches by using problem examples with increasing difficulty. There is very little repetition, and each concept or type of problem is only in the book once and possibly twice at most. That said, I would not recomend this for someone that has never taken any calculus in their life.

Otherwise, I covered log functions, and derivatives in only a couple hours with great comprehension!
Quick read, easy to follow  Jul 26, 2007
This book has helped me review my calculus that has long been forgotten. It starts with review of algebra, trigonometry, and pre-calc material. Then dives into single variable derivatives and integrals. I don't think there is any multi-variable calculus.
excellent overview of the basics  Jan 23, 2007
I used this book to prepare for some graduate work in geosciences. I found that it was an excellent text for getting up to speed and comfortable with single variable calculus. However, the coverage of multivariable calculus is very basic. There is no vector calculus, grad, curl, etc. So this will get you started, but for most applications you will still have a long way to go.
A quick fix for mathphobes  Nov 19, 2005
I used the 1st edition of this book to prepare myself to take courses in chemical thermodynamics, kinetics and electrochemistry in 1979 after I began my Ph.D. program in Geology at Michigan State University. I had taken one college course in calculus eight years prior and did not perform well. The book is well named, I was "quickly" up to a level where I had no problem with the math in physical chemistry, and I did quite well in these courses. I found myself wondering why calculus had been so "hard" as an undergraduate as it certainly was not presented in a difficult manner in "Quick Calculus". Now, many years later with 6 years in industry and more than 17 years experience teaching at the university level, I am of the opinion that most math faculty in universities simply are very poor teachers of mathematics. It is significant that the authors of this fine book are both physicists (one a Noble Prize winner). This is as it should be because the calculus was invented, more than 300 years ago, specifically to solve very applied problems in the physical sciences. I would not expect such a book as "Quick Calculus" from a pure mathematician. I have recommended the book to numerous students who needed a review of calculus, or who, like me, failed to learn it the first time in their university courses. In fact I just recommended it to a student today and was checking to see if the book was available at this site, and decided to write this review.
