Multi-Var Calc Book. PLEASE HELP! :D

Hey guys, I need to pick up a Multi-Variable Calculus book that is pretty good.

I am looking for something that will teach me all of the material. I don't care about how "easy" it is or anything along those lines, I just need something that has a wide range of problems.

I am going to be teaching myself, my goal is to learn this in 3 weeks.

Thanks guys



Help is mucho appreciated

I don't have my calc books with me (I can check tonight, though), but I can tell you what not to get. Don't get Apostle's book. Not if you want to have any clue what's going on, anyway. A friend of mine earning his PhD in math loves it, but if your main priority is learning to solve computational calculus problems, then that book is not for you! Well, not unless you need some bedtime reading to cure insomnia.

haha, I think I might look at it.

I am going down to a local book "used" store to look at some books. I want one that will have a solution manual. I really hate flipping to the back every couple of minutes.

Thanks guys

Keep em coming

Does Thomas release Multi-Var books?

Look for multi-variable calculus books on Amazon, then sort by user rating.
