Hardy is outdated.

Calculus is a part of pure math

There are a lot of better analysis books available.

Ah okay, thought it was a good book.

Simultaneously of course. What is wrong with bouncing from one to another if necessary?

That's what I thought. Thanks!

You don't need Hardy's book.

Go with Spivak. You can't really do both at once - Spivak's very difficult.

Why don't I need Hardy's book? Does Spivak cover some pure maths?

I just finished A-Levels (high school) and I bought two maths books to study over summer.

I got Spivak's Calculus and "A Course of Pure Mathematics" by G.H.Hardy.

With which book should I start? Or should I learn from them simultaneously?

I thought of buying Spivak's Calculus. I already know the basics of Calculus so I assume I will be fine with Spivak's book.
Do you think I'm making a good choice?

Thanks for you replies!

I am an A-level student in Cambridge soon finishing the A2.
From doing Mathematics I got very interested in Calculus, and
now I'm looking for a complete course for Calculus in order to
learn it at a much higher depth.

Can anyone suggest a great book on Calculus?

Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum and I joined in order to seek advice.
I am a 17 year old A-level student in Cambridge, UK and I really enjoy mathematics.

However, school only teaches you what you will need for exam.
I want to teach myself maths, and explore much more in depth than the school can teach you.

How and where should I start?

Thank you.
