"The greatest strength of this book is the realistic nature of examples and exercises. Obviously the authors went to a lot of effort to create these! I also think the students appreciate these books that make an earnest effort to communicate with them in a way they will find useful." "I think the idea of making Excel central to the course is the correct approach for a business oriented mathematics course."
"The Question-and-Answer segments add to the readability of the text and help bring it alive for the students. They probably don't think of questions as they read, so providing some questions further enhances the value of the book." "Applied Calculus is a breath of fresh air. It is very readable, so I can confidently assign reading to my students."
"I love the Question and Answer paragraphs. They pinpoint key ideas and offer clear explanations of why things are done in a particular way. Moreover, as a teaching tool, the instructor can emphasize to the students that these are the types of questions they should ask themselves whenever they are reading or listening to any mathematical presentation. If they can't come up with the answers themselves, it is an indication they need more work or need to get help from their instructor."
"I have been using Waner/Costenoble for several years now and have enjoyed their use of humor and useful application exercises Their integration of real world problems helps answer students' questions of 'When am I ever going to use this?' Rare is such a question when using this book." "The addition of Excel is a great tool for those using computers in their courses."
