Well, the good news is that you *can* master calculus. It's not nearly as tough as its mystique would lead you to think. Much of calculus is really just very advanced algebra, geometry, and trig. It builds upon and is a logical extension of those subjects. If you can do algebra, geometry, and trig, you can do calculus.

*Calculus For Dummies* is intended for three groups of readers:

**Students taking their first calculus course**– If you're enrolled in a calculus course and you find your textbook less than crystal clear, this is the book for you. It covers the most important topics in the first year of calculus: differentiation, integration, and infinite series.**Students who need to brush up on their calculus to prepare for other studies**– If you've had elementary calculus, but it's been a couple of years and you want to review the concepts to prepare for, say, some graduate program,*Calculus For Dummies*will give you a thorough, no-nonsense refresher course.**Adults of all ages who'd like a good introduction to the subject**– Non-student readers will find the book's exposition clear and accessible.*Calculus For Dummies*takes calculus out of the ivory tower and brings it down to earth.

This is a user-friendly math book. Whenever possible, the author explains the calculus concepts by showing you connections between the calculus ideas and easier ideas from algebra and geometry. Then, you'll see how the calculus concepts work in concrete examples. All explanations are in plain English, not math-speak. *Calculus For Dummies* covers the following topics and more:

- Real-world examples of calculus
- The two big ideas of calculus: differentiation and integration
- Why calculus works
- Pre-algebra and algebra review
- Common functions and their graphs
- Limits and continuity
- Integration and approximating area
- Sequences and series

Don't buy the misconception. Sure calculus is difficult – but it's manageable, doable. You made it through algebra, geometry, and trigonometry. Well, calculus just picks up where they leave off – it's simply the next step in a logical progression.
