Re: CAS suggestions

Anyways, it is a great book which requires special attention and popularity. It is what taught me calculus the first time 3 years ago.

I was referring to Amazon, who is selling the book.

Re: CAS suggestions

They should give the book for no cost to every household. That way everyone has access to this invaluable teaching resource.

Re: CAS suggestions

Yes, it might be a good idea to download the book. Takes only a couple of minutes even with a modem. That way you can read it when you are offline.

Re: CAS suggestions

I have an ereader but scarcely use it. I prefer books (any print material) but I do sometimes read electronically.
