9781133103929 – Applied Calculus, Brief by Geoffrey C.; Rockett, Andrew M Berresford

The lessons in the book are taught through examples and the examples aren’t very well explained in the book. It would take me days of just staring at the lessons trying to figure out where the author got this number from and why they did a certain thing in the problem. One person found this helpful. I had a really hard time learning from this book – it was very dry and I did a calculua of googling to find videos that explained the concepts more in depth.


I used this book for an online class, so maybe that was the problem, however I think the price applisd really high considering there was no link to a website with more information. Brie have purchased a few math textbooks btief my time and this one is overpriced for two 6tu This book has the most useless graphing calculator explanations I have ever encountered in a math textbook. Most people who take the classes that this book is useful for are business majors or some form of science that does not require an in-depth knowledge of calculus.

This book is teaching applied calculus. As in, applying calculus to real world business and social science problems you will come across in the afore mentioned fields. It is just as important to teach how to obtain the desired results from a graphing calculator as it is to teach the fundamentals behind the way these problems are solved.

In real world situations, shortcuts save money.

Graphing calculators and spreadsheet software provide many shortcuts. This book, at best, shows you the screen that you should obtain after going through all of the steps it neglects to show you. If you are lucky They could at least provide these instructions. See Triola, for a great example of how a math book should integrate calculator instructions. There are numerous errors that I and my instructor have found in the answer keys of this textbook and its accompanying solutions manual.

In fact, the in many cases the solution manual gives a different result than the answer key in the back ebrresford the book. These are necessary tools to check your work and make sure berresforv have everything down before you head of to a test. Homework usually doesn’t count for much caculus college classes, it’s all about the testing. The problem here is that it wastes your time, and you think your’e goin f-ing crazy when you do everything right and the answer key tells you that you are wrong.


A typo is expected here or there, but this book has way too many for the price they are charging. This on par with the most expensive math books I have ever purchased.

Other than that, I like the way the book is designed. They just need some quality control and at least a calculator appendix and this book would be worth the ridiculous price they’re charging. I bought this book for an applied calculus class for business calc. It certainly does a good job of introducing the material in a rational manner. I’d recommend this book for anyone who wants to get a practical look at calculus without the headache of engineering applications unless you’re into that sort of thing.

Editkon school, per teacher. I used this book as my first introduction to Calculus. I think it must be a good book because I understood the lessons without any difficulty. I think the price of textbooks is obscene; but I can’t justify deducting stars for that reason. All pages are there. Almost new book at a very good price. See all 46 reviews.
