I am looking for a book(s) with detailed information from all of calculus that is concise with illustrations and directions, gives example problems, and has answers to those problems. I have an old one; however, a 1945 book is quite out dated... There is even a table of log values since there were no calculators Anything can help, i prefer not a textbook per se... Well a textbook is fine but I would prefer a normal book size if you catch my drift. oh and a physics book calculus based would be cool too.

So you want a book that contains much more than a standard Calculus book but is much smaller?

Pretty much all calculus books have example problems, illustrations where appropriate, and directions. I'm not trying to be a smart ass but that pretty much narrows it down to all calculus books... Could you give us a little more information about yourself? like maybe if you consider yourself to be good at math, or if you're majoring or will be majoring in a math heavy field like cs, engineering, economics, etc. like for example if you're going to major in hospitality or nursing then there's no reason for a book like spivak or apostol, but if you're going to do something in STEM then telling you to use one of the easier calculus book like the one my school uses would be a crime since you'd be missing out on a chance to practice problem solving skills and analysis. also if you don't want a heavy book you could always try a pdf.
