Great Study Tool... Jan 26, 2007
Bob Miller's "Calc for the Cluless: Calc I" is very helpful. I find that he does a great job explaining the topics and gives a variety of examples for practice. If the Calc I is great, then the other two books in his series must be great as well.
Math Made Easy! Apr 5, 2006
Bob Miller takes very difficult concepts and makes them extremely easy to grasp. It is the one math book that will not make you tear your hair out of your head! The author uses a bit of humor and emotion to make math understandable to the average layman. The books are meant to be a supplement to whatever math text you are using. After Bob explains the concepts you will breeze through your textbook's examples. A great book at a great price!
This is awful. Mar 25, 2002
I don't know what planet miller is from, but it surely isn't one of a student. There are tons of other books out there to learn by besides this one. It is so hard to understand and the examples are just stupid. I am teaching myself calculus and I have found Calculus Made Easy and the Barron's calculus books to be much better. Of course, some of the best books can be found at your local library which were written in the early 1900s.
This book is more designed to go along with classroom instruction, but it really isn't good at that either. I would not recommend this.
Not a good introduction to calculus Jun 16, 2001
I bought this book to help me understand calculus, as a student returning to a graduate program after many years out of school. This was definitely not the book to buy. I understood my textbook more than Calc for the Clueless. Lots and lots of equations but very little in the way of explanations.
A good review for a final exam, but ... Oct 24, 1998
I ordered this book hoping for a good *introduction* to calculus, with some intuitive explanations of some of the basic concepts of calculus. Instead, this book is meant to help a student solve problems correctly, without necessarily improving their understanding. The book's style is annoying - it's written in 1st person, and every page has lots of !!!'s. For example one chapter begins, "The subject I beleive I teach better than anyone in the world is..." The problem solving methods are clear and it will work for a review, but it wouldn't work for someone who had never seen the course, and I don't think it would help someone understand what calculus is all about.
