According to figures released by ACT Inc., many more U.S. high school students are taking courses in mathematics than was the case a decade ago. In fact, the portion of college-bound students taking calculus increased from 16 percent in 1987 to 27 percent in 2000. Let's face it, most students and adults who take calculus do so not for the fun of it, but rather to advance within a job or fulfill a degree requirement. The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Calculus will take the sting out of this complex math by putting it's uses, functions and limitations in perspective of what is already familiar to readers-algebra. Once readers have brushed up on their algebra and trigonometry skills, they'll be eased into the fundamentals of calculus.

W. Michael Kelley is an award winning Calculus Teacher and the author of Master the AP Calculus AB and BC Tests, by ARCO publishing, by far the best-selling advanced placement book in ARCO's "Master" series. Mr. Kelley is praised for his ability to make what can be perceived as a very intimidating topic very approachable, even humorous. His dedication to helping students and adults alike conquer their fear of numbers is exemplified by the many honors he has received throughout his career, including an award from the Maryland Council of Teachers of Mathematics recognizing him as an Outstanding High School Mathematics Teacher and his four-year running title as of "Most Popular Teacher" in his home school. But perhaps the most significant credit to Mr. Kelley's talent is his record of achievement.
