CALCULUS WEB SITES

(The instructor bears no responsibility for these sites, beyond Testing Strategies.)

• Testing Strategies

• Test-taking Tips and Reducing Test Anxiety:

• Tutoring Sites

• Videos: Calculus Success Program

http://www.calcsuccess.com/ - Prof. Guillermo Alvarez at City has uploaded excellent companion videos, including short preview videos that you should watch before we cover particular topics. His students have benefited greatly from these – let me know if you see similar results!

• Books (some on reserve)

Swokowski textbook (Classic/5th edition). This is the textbook we use at Mesa College. It is concise.

• Larson textbook. This is very clear. Old editions are sold at very cheap prices on http://www.ebay.com and http://www.amazon.com.

• Schaum’s Outline of Calculus. These paperbacks are much cheaper than textbooks, and they have many worked-out problems. See: http://www.ebay.com and http://www.amazon.com.

• NEW!  SCHAUM’S OUTLINE OF CALCULUS at our library (LRC)

• Solved problems, but no theorems (have a book or notes handy): https://www.amazon.com/Schaums-Solved-Problems-Calculus-Outlines/dp/0071635343/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1527748044&sr=8-4&keywords=Schaum%27s+outline+of+calculus
