Calculus: Early Transcendentals builds from a foundation of strong exercise sets, then draws you into the narrative through writing that reflects an instructor's voice. Examples are stepped out and thoroughly annotated, and figures are designed carefully to work with the content. The 3rd Edition introduces important advances and refinements while retaining its proven hallmark features. Extensively revised exercise sets are rearranged and relabeled, with some modified and other new ones added. Chapter Review exercises are thoroughly revised to provide more exercises, more intermediate-level problems, and more opportunities to choose a strategy of solution.
