Publisher Comments:

Student Tested And Approved! If you suffer from math anxiety, then sign up for private tutoring with Bob Miller! Do logarithms, sines, and cosines leave you in a cold sweat? Vectors and derivatives send stress signals to your brain? If so, them you are like the many thousands of students--students of all ages, all levels--who are anxiously trying to master math. Particularly calculus. Luckily, there is a cure: Bob Miller's Calc for the Clueless series! Like the teacher you always wished you had (but never thought existed), Bob Miller brings a combination of knowledge, empathy and fun to this often troubling subject. He breaks down the learning process in an easy, nontechnical way and builds it up again using his own unique methods. ``Basically, the Clueless books are my notes. Exactly the way I teach: friendly, clear. . .with some humor and plenty of emotion!! Meant to bridge the gap between the student, the textbook, and the teacher, Calc for the Clueless is packed with all the information you need to conquer calc. In this first edition of alc II are: anxiety-reducing features on every page; quick-take methods that fit short study sessions (and short attention spans); Green's theorem, Stoke's theorem, and others; more information on max, min, and La Grange; derivatives in many directions; plus curves and limits in 1D, 2D, and 3D. I am always delighted when a student tells me that he or she hated math. . .but taking a class with me has made math understandable. . .even enjoyable. Now it's your turn. Sharpen you #2 pencils and let Bob Miller show you how to never be clueless again! Calc for the Clueless series Precalc with Trig, 2nd edition perfect for High School students, students in AP math courses, or college students who need a refresher; a great primer for the SATs Calc I 2nd edition, Calc II 2nd edition, Calc III First edition, designed for first- and second-year college students enrolled in a course calculus sequence, or AP Calculus high school students.
