I've been working on this review for a while now, but the recent

discussion of differential equations goaded me to finish it.

Several of the techniques discussed on this list can be found

in Apostol Volume II.

Excerpt:

Tom M. Apostol _Calculus_ (two volumes)

Executive summary: Uncommonly good. The gold standard.

This is not "Calculus for Dummies". This is calculus for students who

are somewhat clever and somewhat sophisticated, and would like to

become more so.

Whereas most calculus books are pretty much the same, Apostol’s books

stand apart from the herd. They are full of surprises: sometimes more

practical, sometimes more rigorously formal, and sometimes both at

once.

Bottom line: If you can only own one calculus text or calculus

reference, this is the one you want.
