Newbie Joined: Aug 2013 Posts: 1 Thanks: 0  Which Calculus:A First Course in Calculus VS Thomas Calculus
I am a Software engineer, have learned Calculus I, and II long time ago. I want to buy a Calculus book at entry level to refresh my skill. I bought Calculus 10th by Larson, which I cannot understand the Limits from Chapter 2. I am looking for an alternative below, could you please kindly help me decide. I want the book which is * easy to understand, good/solid explanation * Good exercise with solutions * Learn good/solid foundation for other maths topics (Multivariable Calulus, computer related maths) Alternative beginner books to choose: 1) A First Course in Calculus (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics) 5th by Serge Lang 2) Thomas' Calculus: Early Transcendentals 12nd  George B. Thomas JR Thanks in advance!
