Horrible book to learn from, okay as a reference
By Ogre Ray
These were the first words of my professor this semester, and now (after the course) I completely agree:
"This is an awful book to try and learn from. It is highly technical and hard to read\understand. It will be useful later on as a reference to you."
I went the entire semester learning from the professor, who usually didn't use the text, as it is very wordy/technical. He taught in a way that was easy to grasp and communicated the basics. Comparing the material I learned (in layman's terms) to the extremely technical jargon that this text used was uncomfortable.
If you are trying to learn, stay away from this book.
if you need a reference book, this is probably good for you.

Really good book would recommend for all college students or independent ...
By Upkar Singh
Really good book would recommend for all college students or independent learners. The author does a great job in making his book self contained. Although it is an advance calculus book you will find a lot of basic calculus such as differential equations really well explained. All in all it wasnt too difficult to follow if you have some sort of passion in the field of mathematics (By this I mean that you don't terribly hate math) :)

Good book for semi-autonomous learning.
By Felipe Vargas
I need this book for a diff eq class; the professor is quite intelligent, but not very good at lecturing. I find that listening to a lecture and then going back to the book for a clear presentation of the day's material is excellent. If one is the kind of person to learn from a book, then I would recommend the book to him. Derivations are presented clearly and with explanations in between steps. Both a good pedagogical and reference book.
