The only way to learn calculus is to do calculus problems. Lots of them!

And that's what you get in this book--more calculus problems than your worst nightmare—but with a BIG difference. Award-winning calculus teacher W. Michael Kelley has been through the whole book and made a ton of notes, so you get:

1,000 problems with comprehensive solutions
• Annotated notes throughout the text, clarifying exactly what's being asked
• Really detailed answers (no more skipped steps!)
• Extra explanations that make what's baffling perfectly clear
• Pointers to other problems that show skills you need

And all of the major players are here: limits, continuity, derivatives, integrals, tangent lines, velocity, acceleration, area, volume, infinite series—even the really tough stuff like epsilon-delta proofs and formal Riemann sums.

So dig in to your heart's content!
W. Michael Kelley is a former award-winning calculus teacher and the author of six math books, including The Complete Idiot's Guide to Algebra, Second Edition, and The Humongous Book of Calculus Problems.
