@Adam: I tried to have a go ;-). Was not very comfortable. Will try again after reading some more.

thanks... expecially for the problems, though I will need some time. But I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

comment Difficulties with Chapter 2 in Rudin
"Because the subject is relatively standard, other texts may provide a different perspective on a topic that provides you with that "ah-ha" moment -- why have one teacher when you can have many? " Yeah, though so, but I was afraid, (see my comment on answer by Samuel Reid about multivariable calculus book.) Hence, I was kind of reluctant. But, I will try now, I have Royden with me. I will get korner if possible and see.

comment Difficulties with Chapter 2 in Rudin
thanks for the clarification, was just browsing through one of the multivariate calculus book, they said the same thing about compactness as described by Samuel Reid, so I had an idea, but kahen's explanation clarifies it. Thank You! Anyway, that is cleared now. But, boy, was I confused when I read that book!!

+1 : Thanks. I am an electrical engineer too. I was good in mathematics in school and have a decently good olympiad experience, and so thought that I may be able to handle Rudin well ;-). I will take your advice of keeping other books as supplement. Thanks for your advice.

Thanks for the answer. And you are right, I am also having problems with the limit point. I found your question some time before, but I guess I did not read it well enough. I will go back to it and read it again more carefully. And thank you for the hints. I wil try to follow your suggestions. :-) And of course the encouragement. :-)
