Apart from the numerous typos that other readers have pointed out, I'd also mention the main caveat of this book is that it barely covers any analysis. This book will be a great refresher on differentiation methods and rules and the methods of integration to achieve areas of 2– and 3D figures, but it only touches on power series in a brief chapter, and never returns. You won't find anything on Riemann sums, differentiability conditions, limits (beyond the bare minimum to differentiate), series convergence tests, etc., which you'll probably cover in depth in a Calc I or Calc II course. However, if your main drive was simply to get into calculus (as was mine), then it's a perfectly good book, and you can catch up on analysis later.
ETA: I was wrong, there is coverage of Riemann integration in chapter 15.
Unfortunately, the examples and "quizes" are less than inclusive.
A few examples are less than complete and left me wanting more.
However, as a primer, this book serves as a good basic math book that will help students to get the feel for the math they are studying in school. This book serves as a good book for me to use in my tutoring capacity.
Adding about another one-hundred pages to this publication in a future edition to include a bit more detail on certain subjects like the bacis geometry section might be due to be considered.
