Your light-hearted, practical approach to conquering calculus
Does the thought of calculus give you a coronary? You aren't alone. Thankfully, this new edition of Calculus Workbook For Dummies makes it infinitely easier. Focusing 'beyond the classroom,' it contains calculus exercises you can work on that will help to increase your confidence and improve your skills. This hands-on, friendly guide gives you hundreds of practice problems on limits, vectors, continuity, differentiation, integration, curve-sketching, conic sections, natural logarithms, and infinite series.
Calculus is a gateway and potential stumbling block for students interested in pursuing a career in math, science, engineering, finance, and technology. Calculus students, along with math students in nearly all disciplines, benefit greatly from opportunities to practice different types of problems—in the classroom and out. Calculus Workbook For Dummies takes you step-by-step through each concept, operation, and solution, explaining the 'how' and 'why' in plain English, rather than math-speak. Through relevant instruction and practical examples, you'll soon learn that real-life calculus isn't nearly the monster it's made out to be.

Master differentiation and integration
Use the calculus microscope: limits
Analyze common functions
Score your highest in calculus
Complete with tips for problem-solving and traps to avoid, Calculus Workbook For Dummies is your sure-fire weapon for conquering calculus!
