Can someone recommend me a calculus book?
« on: 13/02/2006 09:56:44 »
Hey guys, I am new here and I find this forum so much interesting although I cannot understand full of it.
Since I am a senior high school student, I wonder if you could provide me with some of the books you have been using which you think is very good. Any subject! calculus, physics,biology,whatever! And you can also recommend books you heard of being exellent.
cuz I wanna begin my college studies earlier.

I think the feynman's lectures on physics are really good, and I hope you could read it.

THANX!

An absolutely superb and readable physics related maths book that takes you all the way from simple addition up to string theory and quantum gravity via standard vector and tensor calculus is Roger Penrose's book "The Road to Reality".

it is ISBN 0-224-04447-8

I just cannot reccommend it too highly

Learn, create, test and tell
evolution rules in all things
God says so!

I find the internet the most useful "book". Not much it can't tell you.
