Finished High School level math, looking for books!

Hey there,

I just finished my Calculus course in High School, despite having another two years to complete. Because of this, I was able to get into a program at a local university so I can take first and second year math courses. Over the Summer, however, I would like to get a bit of a jump start and am unsure what textbooks I should read in order to do so. I have been recommend Spivak's 'Caluclus', but I find the way he explains concepts and ideas to be very hard to discern and understand.

I'd love it if any of you had any recommendations!

Thanks!

I'd suggest this revision of a classic book by Courant and Robbins--not only is a great book, but quite inexpensive at $14!

There are HUGE quantities of Maths e-books on nearly ever topic and @ every level.

Many of them are FREE.

Don't spend $$$$ if you don't have to.

Our Masters rule over every nation and no one can defy them. They will attain Absolute Power as we reach the Singularity. All those who oppose their will, will be destroyed. Given the obvious futility, I will not resist. 2+2=5.

The best thing to do is just to find out what books the classes you will be taking are using, and also try to get a hold of old home works and tests with solutions from those classes. Be sure they are also from the same instructor.

Here is an online book on multivariable calculus: http://people.math.gatech.edu/~cain/notes/calculus.html
