Get the BOOK

The book we use in this class is Calculus 8th ed. By James Stewart.



There are many versions of this book so be sure to get the correct one.  We do NOT use the “early transcendentals version”.  Students often ask if they can use an old version.  Although the earlier versions do not differ much from the 8th edition, the page numbers and problem sets have differences which will make it difficult for you so I discourage it.  I do not use “WebAssign” so you will not need an access code.


The two biggest predictors of success in Math 5C are your (1)  willingness to be committed and work hard and (2) your knowledge of 5A and 5B. I would suggest you read the outline for this course and review in particular any of the prerequisite knowledge mentioned there.
