I bought this book for an applied calculus class for business calc. It certainly does a good job of introducing the material in a rational manner. There are also many business and real world applications of calculus that a business/marketing major might find familiar from other courses.

Designed for the one- or two-semester applied or business calculus course, this text uses intriguing real-world applications to engage students' interest and show them the practical side of calculus.

This text for the one semester applied or business calculus course uses intriguing real-world applications to engage students' interest and show them the practical side of calculus. Many applications are financial or business related, but many applications in this text cover general-interest topics as well, including the growing population of Africa, the composition of the Supreme Court, water shortage, the fastest pitch in baseball, and pollution and the depletion of natural resources. The Fifth Edition maintains the hallmark features that have made Brief Applied Calculus so popular: contemporary and interesting applications; careful and effective use of technology, including integrated calculator coverage that is optional; constant pedagogical reinforcement through section summaries, chapter summaries, carefully annotated examples, and extra practice problems; and a variety of exercises and assignment options including exercise sets, projects, and essays.
Reviews about Brief Applied Calculus (7):

I needed to buy this book for a class that I was in. The only good thing about it is that most of the problems are geared towards business majors. The lessons in the book are taught through examples and the examples aren't very well explained in the book. It would take me days of just staring at the lessons trying to figure out where the author got this number from and why they did a certain thing in the problem.
It's great for someone who knows what they're doing but for someone trying to learn the subject BUY ANOTHER BOOK!!!

I had a really hard time learning from this book - it was very dry and I did a ton of googling to find videos that explained the concepts more in depth. I used this book for an online class, so maybe that was the problem, however I think the price was really high considering there was no link to a website with more information. Kind of disappointed.

I have purchased a few math textbooks in my time and this one is overpriced for two reasons:

1.) This book has the most useless graphing calculator explanations I have ever encountered in a math textbook. Most people who take the classes that this book is useful for are business majors or some form of science that does not require an in-depth knowledge of calculus. This book is teaching applied calculus. As in, applying calculus to real world business and social science problems you will come across in the afore mentioned fields. It is just as important to teach how to obtain the desired results from a graphing calculator as it is to teach the fundamentals behind the way these problems are solved. In real world situations, shortcuts save money. Graphing calculators and spreadsheet software provide many shortcuts. This book, at best, shows you the screen that you should obtain after going through all of the steps it neglects to show you. If you are lucky...very lucky...it will tell you the main command that you use to get the desired result, leaving out the steps to find this command and what to enter when you do. Most people who take this class will be using a TI-83/84 Plus calculator. They could at least provide these instructions. See Triola, for a great example of how a math book should integrate calculator instructions.

2.) There are numerous errors that I (and my instructor) have found in the answer keys of this textbook and its accompanying solutions manual. In fact, the in many cases the solution manual gives a different result than the answer key in the back of the book. These are necessary tools to check your work and make sure you have everything down before you head of to a test. Homework usually doesn't count for much in college classes, it's all about the testing. The problem here is that it wastes your time, and you think your'e goin f-ing crazy when you do everything right and the answer key tells you that you are wrong. A typo is expected here or there, but this book has way too many for the price they are charging. This on par with the most expensive math books I have ever purchased.

Other than that, I like the way the book is designed. They just need some quality control and at least a calculator appendix and this book would be worth the ridiculous price they're charging.

I'd recommend this book for anyone who wants to get a practical look at calculus without the headache of engineering applications (unless you're into that sort of thing).

Good price.

For school, per teacher

All pages are there. Almost new book at a very good price.
This company false advertises the new edition of the book, and sends you an old edition, with false ISBN advertising. I will NOT be purchasing from Anybooks, ANYMORE....
