Reviews - What do customers think about Calculus: Multivariable?

Leaner and livelier than most other calculus books   Aug 29, 2006
This book is designed to be a continuation of the book "Calculus: Single Variable" by the same authors. They continue using the same approach here that they used in the earlier book. The number of exercises at the end of the sections is kept small; nothing frustrates me more than when I see these huge calculus books where the authors put an enormous number of exercises at the end of each chapter. I have referred to this situation as an "arms race" where the only point of distinction between books is the number of exercises, many of which simply illustrate the same concept.
While there are some exercises under the heading of computer/calculator, the authors do not spend any time illustrating how to solve problems using a programmable calculator or a symbolic mathematics package such as Mathematica. I commend them for this approach, I have found trying to teach calculus this way to be counterproductive.
The explanations of multi-variable calculus are as good as you will find and the authors use the standard example/solution approach. There is a near universal consensus regarding what should be covered in multivariable calculus and the authors adhere to those standards. I was also pleased to see that the authors have split their treatment of calculus into two separate books. Multivariable calculus is generally a third course in calculus and students such as computer science majors rarely take it. I appreciate the option of having two separate books and I know the computer science majors will as well.
The two-book sequence of calculus books authored by Blank and Krantz can easily be used to teach all three semesters of calculus. By leaving out some of the material that many calculus teachers such as myself consider unnecessary, they have made calculus much leaner and livelier than most other authors have.
