Hey guys, In my reading and learning its becoming apparent to me that I lack miserably in calculus. I have a few books but would like a few more that are suited for my learning style. I have 'A tour of the calculus' and REA's precalculus. One is pretty much written in laymens terms and the other is pretty much just a bunch of questions and answers. Together they are pretty good but I'm looking for any recommendations. I tend to have trouble learning just looking at functions. I do a lot better when there is a sort of real world answer that I can mess with to see why the function works. Without buying numerous books can any of you recommend any good books for me. I have a basic understanding of derivatives and I'm moving slowly through that but my integral knowledge is pretty lacking. It seems to take me longer since I really like to know why a function works versus just knowing it.

I guess its like the constant PI. Even if you new every equation that used it by heart but didnt know that it was the relation of the circumference to the diameter of a circle you may never be able to implement it into other works since you dont know why it works. Make sense? lol

Thanks, Jason
