May 12, Ronald Lett rated it really liked it Shelves: Aug 21, Umair Hasan added it. I also found the practice problems to be really helpful, as they are not overly-difficult and tend to reinforce the most important concepts.
Almost always they make you go back to the text of the chapter for a second read. Highly recommended for a first time exposure to cuel subject. To see what your friends echey of this book, please sign up.
It also helps build intuitions for calculus courses which are more rigorous, since the author specifies in what sense he is being “sloppy” by stating what are needed to make some arguments work in rigorous manner. It’s well written, at times funny, and easy to furl. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Ideal for the physics student who wants to develop their intuition for the basic theorems of vector calculus. Very unclear derivations at times and very big logical steps missing.
It will prepare you well for. Mar 30, duv rated it it was amazing. Although the author has justified the existence of the 4th edition largely due to the insertion of more examples, I still think that they are not enough. A short and concise book for getting intuition on vector calculus as a tool for physics.
May 01, Jeff rated it did not like it. Readers just need to know ggrad basic calculus and a glimpse of multivariable calculus to understand it all.
Limited to three dimensions, limited in its rigor, but within these limits crystal-clear about the how and why of Div, Grad, Curl and the equations in which these derivatives occur. Aug 29, Morgan rated it it was amazing. Jun 13, Mostafa Alkady rated it it was amazing.
These diiv of examples are simply not here.
Exercises are more difficult as chapters progress. I’ll have to go back through to do a more careful rereading and work some of the problems, but it’s a pretty wonderful guide to the topic of multivariable calculus. A lot of figures mean that you better understand what the author says. Confusing unclear derivation of the gradient.

I sure wish I’d had it about ten years before Rhett recommended it in an LJ comment, iirc. I didn’t discover it until the end of my course in vector calculus, and I wish I had used it as a companion piece for the course. This math book is incredibly fun to read: While the small size makes for a quick and easy read, it certainly would not hurt if the next edition was bumped up to pages. Want to Read saving…. These restrictions are just enough to justify a 4-star rating, although I would gladly give it an easy 5-star rating if it had just a bit more examples.
I highly recommend it. So overall its an intuitive first introduction to the subject that A short and concise book for getting intuition on vector calculus as a tool for physics.
Div, grad, curl, and all that : an informal text on vector calculus / H.M. Schey – Details – Trove
I give it a 4-star rating because while it has many very good points that differentiate it from other books on Vector Calculus, it also has some restrictions. This book is all about intuition rather than rigor. Marco rated it did not like it Nov 17, Nov 25, Teressa marked it as to-read.
Paperbackpages. The book also shows the concepts applied to electromagnetism for which vector calculus was originally developed. Non-rigorous derivations that are so intuitive that it will be easy for everyone to reproduce them and actually really understand the basic ideas behind grae.
