    "Calculus: The Classic Edition is a useful book for Chemical Engineering students. I used this book in college and decided to keep it instead of selling it back. The examples are clear and the different concepts are well explained. This is one of those references that is just extraordinary both inside and outside of the academic setting. "

    "Chemistry has been getting rough for me. I consider myself a good student, but it isn't always easy! Thank goodness I found this book. A peer recommended it to me, and now I have chemical engineering down pat, and I am not even halfway through the book. I feel far more confident I will be passing with flying colors!"

    "There are much better options out there for any chemical engineering students that need a differential equations textbook. The text in this book is difficult to follow. The chapters are structured very poorly. The example problems and solutions are not explained very well. If you only need a reference book this might be fine but don't expect to learn much directly from the text."
