Probably the largest textbook I have ever had.

Good for all 3 calculus’


deadkidney1978

Yeah. My school uses it for Calc1, 2, and 3. I know some people don't like it as some explanations are brief, but I I kind of like not being spoon fed, tinkering with solutions and finding missing information ony own. I tend to learn better that and processes it to memory better. Kind of the way I trained my Junior Sailors on our missile launching system in the Navy. If they were just given the path to fixing everything they'll never learn how to research the solution to answers and fault isolation themselves.


Few_Rooster_4497

Personally, I like being spoon fed by Larson, everything is so clear and concise.


RangerPL

My school used Larson and I hated it especially when tutoring. The chapter on trig sub sucks fucking ass


Few_Rooster_4497

Debatable


ischryan

Ahh I see you too are fellow individual of culture. Larson ftw!!!


Karam2468

How come?


mikeblas

How so?


iMaxPlanck

Calculi?


MindInTheMirror

I have no idea how to describe it other than this hurts to view


JimmyJangles22

Our college is using that book for Calc 1-4


deadkidney1978

We have it for Calc 1-3. Diff E uses a different text.


JimmyJangles22

Diff equations is calculus? I really don’t know


deadkidney1978

That wasn't meant to suggest it's calculus. My mistake.


THE_WATER_NATION

It can be considered calculus 4. But most schools call it DiffEQ. Just like complex analysis can be considered calc 5


ewheck

What do you cover in Calc 4? Is this just the standard 3 course sequence, but split into 4 courses?


fluffyxsama

Differential equations is what a lot of people consider "calculus 4", so.... I guess ODE


Machvel

my university goes on the quarter system, and has four calculus classes. its the same thing as the calculus 1-3 sequence, but over four quarters instead of three semesters


JimmyJangles22

Oh I’m only in calculus 1, I just knew my university uses the book for the calculus courses because I looked it up and other students told me.


mayr13

The largest textbook you have ever had for now.


Fernomin

yup, just look for Misner, Thorne and Wheeler's Gravitation. biggest book I've ever seen. also, bought the Thorne Nobel prize edition, and it's sooooo beautiful


PointNineC

I mean a book called Gravitation *should* be massive, no?


Fernomin

here, take this angry upvote and go as far away from me as you can


PointNineC

I will take your upvote and lean uncomfortably close to you


Machvel

stewart calculus actually has more pages than gravitation, but not too much more


cry96

I have a copy. If you finish all three calculus', and continue your math study further, you might even find yourself revisiting it.


deadkidney1978

I'm taking a minor in Mathematics with my Analytics degree. Deciding between applied mathematics M.S or Applied Statistics for after. So maybe it will stay with me.


cry96

It should stay with you! It's a great book


dkgetoffmylawn

Riveting read, made me cry.


dcsprings

5 stars. You'll laugh, you'll cry. The integral of emotion is life.


PointNineC

Ooh. So what is the integral of life then? Also, if the first derivative of life is emotion… what’s the second derivative of life? i.e., What do we get when we take the derivative of our emotions?


dcsprings

The derivative of emotion is sarcasm


PointNineC

I’m not sure I agree. You’re saying that sarcasm is change in emotion over time. Wait a second… I just assumed you were taking the derivative with respect to time…


dcsprings

It's the derivative with respect to respect ;)


PointNineC

The proof is trivial and is left to the reader as an exercise


dcsprings

The indefinite integral of life is the universe, but I don't have a proof.


Emotional_Writer

I have a proof, but this margin is too narrow to contain it. Now if you'll excuse me I have to go die of old age in 28 years' time.


dcsprings

The partial derivative of emotion with respect to the listener is irony.


Nero_the_GREAT

I still have mine. Mainly because no one wants it. Btw I have the solution manual if you need it.


deadkidney1978

I have a PDF version of the solution manual.


username_78_

This is my favourite calculus textbook.


LunarLorkhan

I remember this book actually being pretty decent at explaining concepts.


mikeblas

You're lucky to have the hard bound version. My school used the 3 ring binder version, which is unusable as a long term reference. Actually, can you share the ISBN of the edition you have?


Fishingwithrawley

It only gets worse…


levitikush

How much did that beast cost?


deadkidney1978

I plan on keeping it so I bought it new. I'm ok with the extra cost.


sonleonardo77

i literally self-taught myself calc 1 2 3 with this book. I basically read through all the chapters in the book to learn the concepts because I rarely attend calc class and I must say it's pretty good if you have a good prof to help you go through the book


deadkidney1978

I'm doing my calc classes online with prerecorded lectures. I picked the Prof available with best rate my professor ratings, and recommended from past students.


sonleonardo77

Pre-recorded lectures are also great for using alongside with the book. Im not saying it's "bad" for completely self-taught but i just rather use it with some instructions. Great book to introduce you to calc concepts


king_must_fall

yeah that book is rly good


emo_goth_vegan

I used this one in high school


iMaxPlanck

Fuck yeah I had that book!! Of course it was second edition though lol


Striking_Garden_1808

Is this calculus 2 ?


deadkidney1978

1,2, and 3


salmans13

That's like a book for 4 classes. Cal 1-2-3-4


Karlxxx

Love this book.


Jason_lBourne

Isn’t the other version (red and light blue) bigger. Wider.


deadkidney1978

The regular Stewart Calculus? Maybe. My understanding is the difference is content order.


Jason_lBourne

Maybe. Not sure. Oh shoot you know what. I just looked at the title. This is “early transcendentals” Only I believe, and the one I’m referring to is just a new edition, single book that includes both “early transcendentals and single variable calculus” in one. Super fat book.


Huntersdadistired

PDF is available if you are interested


deadkidney1978

I have a PDF copy.


Saggy_nut_butter

You'll love the read. Calculus will make some cry while others will have their ah ha moment.

NatashaMihoQuinn

Wow that is a nice cover. When I did my cal HW; I would play classical music to help me think 🧐


Emperor-Valtorei

I love that book. I rented a copy when I took calc last but since I'm going to take a few more classes I'm gonna end up buying it.


ado-ante

Well now I know why mine says volume one.


deadkidney1978

The weird thing is my school uses an ISBN that isn't available from Cengage anymore, and I bought this one from Amazon which listed the ISBN my school uses but this one isn't the right ISBN. I have been trying to search for the differences in ISBN's and all I can find is the ISBN my school uses was prior to Cengage and Brooks combining.


ado-ante

That is odd. For reference my books ISBN: 9781305270343


turing_tor

How's the book?. I'm planning to read it.


imaginearsalan

I was awarded with this book in high school during a Maths competition xD.


Breeela

I have the same textbook. Sheeesh
