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 book is a simple, straightforward, direct calculus text. It’s popularity is directly due to its broad use of applications, 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 student-oriented by expanding discussions and providing more examples and figures to help clarify concepts. To further aid students, guidelines for solving problems 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, combined with a thorough checking of each example and exercise.
