Disappointed

By Jude - April 5, 2012

This book offers good practice questions. But there are issues with the publication.

Some questions are ill-formed. For example, question #347 says "Use a Riemann sum to find area A on the interval [0,4] using 4 equal subdivisions."
Aren't you forgetting something? Like do you want me to calculate a LEFT Riemann sum, or a RIGHT Riemann sum, or a Mid-point Riemann sum? The question as stated, cannot be answered.

Here's the beginning of question #212...
"If the function y is differentiable at x=a such that dy/dx does not exist at x=a ..."
WHOA!!! Stop the presses! You're contradicting yourself.

Question #57 asks for dy/dx, where y = 7 + 5^(x^2 + 2x - 1).
None of the multiple choice answers are correct! This is an exponential function (base 5) whose derivative will contain the factor ln(5), but none of the answer choices contain ln(5). Moreover, the back of the book has a spurious solution leading to an answer that's completely... read more

So many mistakes

By Student - April 7, 2013

A good concept for a study book made completely useless by the sheer amount of mistakes. It is so frustrating to be unable to get through 10 of these questions without finding an error in the answer key. This book wastes my valuable studying time and my lack of trust in its content discourages me from using it.

So many mistakes...

By Andy Miller "andymiller20" - December 1, 2012

I teach AP Calculus and thought this book would be a good resource bank from which I could take questions for my students to do. There are a lot of good questions but there are so many mistakes in both the questions (some of which are mentioned in other reviews) and many of the answers and explanations at the back. Some of these are complete nonsense. The answer to the related rates question 197 is the worst I have found so far where they manage to get parts a and c completely wrong and do a terrible job of explaining part b.

If was a student taking the course I would find this very confusing. The book is only useful if you already know how to do the questions and can weed out the dodgy ones before you use them for anything.
