A calculus text book...

I used the 7th edition of this one:

http://www.amazon.co...99510722&sr=8-8

of course they're on the 8th now, because hey, just like any textbook publisher... you have to switch around the problems every couple years to make purchasing their textbook more of a requirement.

Anyways, you might be able to find earlier editions for sale for cheaper. Though 200 bucks is really good, it was more like 340 dollars when I was in school.

actually here is the 7th edition that I used (2001 edition)

http://www.amazon.co...99510894&sr=1-1

I'm telling you the difference is negligeable, I've compared them. A couple problems are different and there is about a 20 page preface added to the 8th edition.

If you are mathematically mature and want a rigorous introduction into Calculus, I would suggest looking at Apostol's Calculus vol.1 and vol.2. I've used both, and have nothing bad to say about them.

If you just want to use Calculus to solve problems and don't care much about theory, then Larson will do.

I am currently using Apostol Single and will move onto Multi. I would suggest it to you if you want to have a rigorous course in Calculus. Be aware that in this book integration is presented before differentiation which is different from most other Calculus books and for good reason as specified in the book.
