I learned fromt he Stewart book when I was in college, but now I teach college prep (non-AP) calc from Larson's Calculus (7ed)

I've worked with lots of calculus books.. There are only two good ones.. and they both have there good and bad points... Go with either Stewert or Larson.. and stay away from the others.

These two books do a very good job explaining things without being wordy and there examples are quite good. There problems apply to real life situations as well.. which is another plus. The rest of the books explain things that make even me, who specializes in calculus scratch my head to try and decipher what they are saying.

I like pointing my students to the practice quizzes for each chapter - it would be even nicer if there were more problems. But these do provide a nice review with instant feedback!

I use the AP Calculus text by Finney, Demana, Waits, and Kennedy (iirc) for my AP Calc AB and BC classes. For regular calculus, I use Stewart 6th edition.
