As a math enthusiast and high school student, I was excited to enter the exciting world of Calculus. The hardcover book Calculus: Concept and Applications looked like one of the more inviting covers in the genre of advanced mathematics, and I was truly going to embrace it as much as I could.
This book didn't make it easy. As a more difficult subject in the field of mathematics, Calculus is going to be a difficult subject to understand, though I'm sure this book could've done a better job of achieving it. The very minimally illustrated examples hardly attempt to fully explain what it is actually illustrating. TThe plain cyan blue and black graphs do not help it.
However, this is not an art book. It is a Calculus book. At this, it doesn't excel either. The lessons can range from 2 pages to 10 pages. With all the information to cover in an introductory Calculus course, the book has 777 pages for. Some subjects, such as revolutions of volumes, are very ill-taught.
To those looking for a greater learning experience in the rough and tumble world of advanced mathematics, look elsewhere.
