One easy thing to do is buy a few different old editions. Math stays the same and it will give you more odd problems to practice. Often old editions you can buy for little more than shipping. Look for Thomas, Anton, Salas and Hille... most of these books are more or less the same. –  James S. Cook Sep 7 '13 at 17:29
@أسامة الزاهد I don't think that there is no one definition of what easy means , so it would be worthless if I tell you what easy to understand for me ! so you must go to library and check if you understand any of the books provided their ! although it's not the complete way but it suffices ... if you still want a book then look for "Calculus, 9th Edition by Ron Larson, Bruce H. Edwards" –  Fayez Abdlrazaq Deab Sep 7 '13 at 18:41
