• Tutoring Sites Click here

• 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.

 

• Outline (with theorems): https://www.amazon.com/Schaums-Outline-Calculus-6th-Problems/dp/0071795537/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1527748044&sr=8-1&keywords=Schaum%27s+outline+of+calculus&dpID=51Uo3evZNRL&preST=_SY291_BO1,204,203,200_QL40_&dpSrc=srch
