From differentiation to integration — solve problems with easeGot a grasp on the terms and concepts you need to know, but get lost halfway through a problem or, worse yet, not know where to begin? Have no fear! This hands-on guide focuses on helping you solve the many types of calculus problems you encounter in a focused, step-by-step manner. With just enough refresher explanations before each set of problems, you'll sharpen your skills and improve your performance. You'll see how to work with limits, continuity, curve-sketching, natural logarithms, derivatives, integrals, infinite series, and more!
100s of Problems!
- Step-by-step answer sets clearly identify where you went wrong (or right) with a problem
- The inside scoop on calculus shortcuts and strategies
- Know where to begin and how to solve the most common problems
- Use calculus in practical applications with confidence

About the Author
A graduate of Brown University and the University of Wisconsin Law School,
Mark Ryan has been teaching math since 1989. He runs the Math Center in Winnetka, Illinois (www.themathcenter.com), where he teaches high school math courses including an introduction to calculus and a workshop for parents based on a program he developed,
The 10 Habits of Highly Successful Math Students. In high school, he twice scored a perfect 800 on the math portion of the SAT, and he not only knows mathematics, he has a gift for explaining it in plain English. He practiced law for four years before deciding he should do something he enjoys and use his natural talent for mathematics. Ryan is a member of the Authors Guild and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
Calculus Workbook For Dummies is Ryan’s third book. Everyday Math for Everyday Life was published in 2002 and Calculus For Dummies (Wiley) in 2003.
