I'm learning Algebra, and the next course in school is Precalculus and Calculus. And according to most reliable sources, Precalculus and Calculus are going to be really difficult.

So.. I'm wondering

Question: Are there any recommended Precalculus and Calculus books (that go together) that you guys suggest?

What I mean by "go together" means that right after you read the Precalculus book, the Calculus book goes right where the Precalculus book left off. As if they "go together".

I prefer books where it's gradual, but they still cover everything (or the gist) you need to know about the courses. Bonus if the solutions are understandable!

  • $\begingroup$ @JackyChong Is there a PDF version online? Because I've noticed that for some books, there's no such thing as an online PDF of the book (for some reason) :/ $\endgroup$ – Frank Oct 26 '16 at 21:28
  • $\begingroup$ I don't think I am allowed to tell you that on this site. $\endgroup$ – Jacky Chong Oct 26 '16 at 21:29
  • $\begingroup$ @JackyChong Wait why? Guidelines? Restrictions? $\endgroup$ – Frank Oct 26 '16 at 21:30
