My son is starting UF in the fall and registered for Honors Calc 3 (MAC 3474). There are no book requirements for his class/section on the UF Bookstore site, but someone in the math dept. told me that it is the same as regular Calc 3. Using the UF site to search for the general MAC 2313 textbook requirements, the texts come up as follows:
ACP CALCULUS VOLUME 3 Buy This Item

BNDL: CALCULUS: EARLY TRANSCENDENTALS Buy This Item
New $239.50 [In-Stock] Author:Stewart Edition:6th
Calculus: Multivariable (SSM) Special Order [Contact Bookstore]
These are expensive!!! If I try to find used books and search for that Early Transcendentals ISBN on other sites, I come up empty. Surely, there has to be a better way. My son has a collection of Calculus texts already just because he loves math. I can't imagine spending almost $300 for one class.
Does anyone have experience with this textbook and why it might be so difficult to find somewhere else? Also, can anyone explain the "BNDL:" and if the recommended material is necessary? Thanks in advance!!
