padHow to Ace Calculus:  The Streetwise Guide

--Colin Adams, Abigail Thompson, and Joel Hass

Written by three gifted teachers, How to Ace Calculus provides humorous and highly readable explanations of the key topics of calculus without the technical details and fine print that would be found a formal text. Capturing the tone of students exchanging ideas among themselves, this unique guide also explains how calculus is taught, how to get the best teachers, what to study, and what is likely to be on exams--all the tricks of the trade that will make learning the material of first-semester calculus a piece of cake. Funny, irreverent, and flexible, How to Ace Calculus shows why learning calculus can be not only a mind-expanding experience, but also fantastic fun.
