There are four versions of the text in two formats. The book was last updated May 30, 2018, 17:02. The initial 2018 edition is identical to the last updated 2017 version.
Until the 2019 edition I will generally make only minor changes, such as typos and wrong answers to exercises. When there is a substantive change, I will update the files and note the change in the changelog.
- Single variable calculus, early transcendentals, in PDF format.
- Multivariable calculus, early transcendentals, in PDF format or HTML format.
- Single variable calculus, late transcendentals, in PDF format.
- Multivariable calculus, late transcendentals, in PDF format or HTML format.
You can get a printed copy of the book at lulu.com. Lulu frequently has special offers for discounts or free shipping; check the main Lulu page before you order. You can also save on shipping by buying multiple copies, if you know of others who would like the book.
I have created a google group for discussions and questions about the book. This is intended to be user supported—I will not be answering all questions myself, or monitoring the group constantly.
Read on for more information and alternative formats.

If you want to print out the text, you may prefer to download individual chapters; if you want to read the book on a computer screen, the whole book linked above is a better choice, as it contains live links that let you easily jump from place to place in the book and to documents and demonstrations on the web. The links "2 up" and "4 up" will give you versions with two or four book pages per printed page.
The links below are for the early transcendentals multivariable book. For the other versions see:
- Single variable calculus
- Single variable calculus, late transcendentals
- Multivariable calculus, late transcendentals
I am always happy to receive suggestions, corrections, and contributions at email@example.com. I would especially appreciate new exercises, preferably with answers and solutions. At some point I would like to put together a solutions manual; solutions to existing problems are also most welcome to help this along.
The source code for the book is available, with some linux scripts to help with production. The source here usually lags the production version, which incorporates the changes listed in the changelog. If you need the current source, send me an email and I will update it as soon as possible.
Some older versions of the book are still available:
