Calculus Early Transcendentals Ninth Edition
CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS, 9th Edition, provides you with the strongest foundation for a STEM future. James Stewart Calculus series is the top-seller in the world because of its problem-solving focus, mathematical precision and accuracy, and outstanding examples and problem sets.
Selected and mentored by Stewart, coauthors Daniel Clegg and Saleem Watson continue his legacy, and their careful refinements retain Stewart’s clarity of exposition and make the 9th Edition an even more useful learning tool.
About the author:
James Stewart’s Calculus texts are widely renowned for their mathematical precision and accuracy, clarity of exposition, and outstanding examples and problem sets.
Millions of students worldwide have explored calculus through Stewart’s trademark style, while instructors have turned to his approach time and time again.
The late James Stewart received his M.S. from Stanford University and his Ph.D. from the University of Toronto. He did research at the University of London and was influenced by the famous mathematician George Polya at Stanford University. Stewart was most recently a Professor of Mathematics at McMaster University, and his research field was harmonic analysis. Stewart was the author of a best-selling calculus textbook series published by Cengage Learning, including CALCULUS, CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS, and CALCULUS: CONCEPTS AND CONTEXTS, as well as a series of precalculus texts.
Daniel Clegg received his B.A. in Mathematics from California State University, Fullerton, and his M.A. in Mathematics from UCLA. He is currently a professor of mathematics at Palomar College near San Diego, California, where he has taught for more than 20 years. Clegg co-authored BRIEF APPLIED CALCULUS with James Stewart and also assisted Stewart with various aspects of his calculus texts and ancillaries for almost 20 years.
Saleem Watson received his Bachelor of Science degree from Andrews University in Michigan. He did graduate studies at Dalhousie University and McMaster University, where he received his Ph.D. in 1978. He subsequently did research at the Mathematics Institute of the University of Warsaw in Poland. He also taught at The Pennsylvania State University. He is currently a Professor of Mathematics at California State University, Long Beach. His research field is functional analysis. Watson is a co-author of Stewart’s best-selling Calculus franchise.
The late Lothar Redlin grew up on Vancouver Island, received a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Victoria, and a Ph.D. from McMaster University in 1978. He subsequently did research and taught at the University of Washington, the University of Waterloo, and California State University, Long Beach. He was most recently a Professor of Mathematics at The Pennsylvania State University, Abington Campus. His research field was topology.
Reviews about the ebook Calculus Early Transcendentals Ninth Edition:
- Vanessa Naidoo:
This product Calculus Early Transcendentals 9th Edition has been broken into a “full” 9th edition and several subproducts. The 9th edition will take you through multivariate calculus, which brings the cost down to about $70/semester.

The Calculus Early Transcendentals 9th Edition ebook arrived on time and in good shape.
As a person who took calculus 10 years ago, I find this ebook a great source for reviewing the materials. However, because it has been a while, there are some gaps in my knowledge, which require attention as I read the materials.
For my own usage, Calculus Early Transcendentals 9th Edition ebook is relatively great with examples and proofs, but I find this will be a challenge for students who are about to learn calculus. It is not very clear, and it relies on intuition too much. Furthermore, it sometimes even assumes the student already knows some knowledge.
Anyone who wants to brush up on calculus or reviewing it for fun, I can highly suggest this book. Yet, if you are about to embark on the wonders of infinity, I would like to suggest another book or watch Khan Academy. This book might throw you off.

Calculus Early Transcendentals 9th Edition It arrived quickly.

My Calculus Early Transcendentals ebook arrived quickly in good condition, it did make me cry though.
- Justin Playfair:
Calculus Early Transcendentals 9th Edition ebook does a very good job of explaining the various concepts introduced, which are covered methodically. In fact, if the ebook consisted solely of those explanations I probably would have given it five stars, but it doesn’t: it also contains many practice problems and answers for the odd problems, and it’s those practice problems that caused me to downgrade my rating.The trouble is, the ebook often makes large logical leaps between the material are presented and the problems you are expected to be able to solve. For example, after reading section 3.3 (“Derivatives of Trigonometric Functions”) you come to problem #47, which is unlike any of the sample problems worked and explained in that section. The answer can be found in the back of the book, but there’s no explanation for how it was arrived at, which is arguably even more important information than the answer itself. After all, what I need much more than knowing the answer to THIS problem is how to solve problems LIKE it myself.
This is just the latest of many examples of this I’ve come across so far. In most cases, it was possible to find an answer on the Internet, but that shouldn’t be necessary. More problematic — but again something I’ve seen repeatedly with Calculus Early Transcendentals 9th Edition ebook — is that the solution to this problem (section 3.3. problem #47) is achieved using something not yet covered in the ebook, specifically L’Hospital’s rule, which isn’t covered until 100 pages later. Perhaps there’s a way of solving the problem without using L’Hospital’s rule, but it isn’t obvious even after re-reading the section and it’s revealing that the solutions I found on the Internet all relied on L’Hospital. If there are, say, two or three effective ways of solving this then why does everyone who knows how to work it use L’Hospital? If I had run into this kind of issue only once or twice I wouldn’t think much of it and chalk it up to my own lack of expertise, but I keep encountering the same thing over and over: the information provided is insufficient for understanding how to solve some of the problems presented.
Based on this, I suspect that the publishers’ reviewers for Calculus Early Transcendentals 9th Edition ebook were probably all people who already knew calculus well and knew how to work the problems without actually learning it from the information provided. Granted, there’s a degree of logic to having experts review the content, but since the target audience is non-experts, it probably would be a good idea to have the problems worked by people who didn’t already know how to solve them and who could point out when the book has fallen short in preparing the reader.
