Required Text:
(1) Calculus, Early Transcendentals, sixth edition, by James Stewart.  Thomson Brooks/Cole, 2008.
     - or -
(2) Multivariable Calculus, sixth edition, by James Stewart.  Thomson Brooks/Cole, 2008.

Version (2) is consists of Chapters 12-17 version (1).  Students should not purchase any version that has "Single Variable Calculus" in the title, since that would be Chapters 1-11 of version (1).  Non "Early Transcendentals" editions are fine, but the chapter numbers will be off-by-one.  Editions other than 6th are also fine, but in that case, students should compare their version to the 6th edition (there are 3 copies on reserve at the Science Library) to make sure there is no confusion with problem numbers and statements.
