Simple Yet Thorough

"I was struggling in Calculus III because of a few concepts that went over my head in the beginning. I ran into "The Calculus 3 Tutor" while searching for study aids to bring up my grades, and it is more than worth the money. Jason breaks everything down into the most basic instructions, and doesn't skip any steps.
I love how you can just rewind it if you miss anything or need more clarity, try doing that with a University professor. :) I recommend this for any Calculus student that is struggling or just wants a better understanding of the subject."
Great Resource if you're willing to watch a college like lec

"This DVD series is an excellent support for Precalculus and Calculus. Is this the right choice for you, though? You must consider whether or not you want to learn Calculus or be entertained. The presenter is not very entertaining - not boring, but hey, he's trying to present Calculus. Many videos are just a little less expensive but for 30 minutes to one hour of instruction. These videos provide 10-14 hours of instruction. So $ for $ I found these extremely helpful compared to others.
If you do not have the option of video-recording your professor or having access to other on-line Calculus video lectures, this is a great supplement for the serious student who can ignore the speaker continually saying "ok" (a bit annoying - 30 times per hour) and who doesn't mind this being like a videotaped lecture.
The presentation of the topics is usually pretty clear. It's great being able to rewind sections. I even occasionally ran the DVD at 1.5 and 2X speed to get through review sections faster.
Hopefully in the next several years there will be enough of these presentations on line for free by various professors - but if you're taking calculus now then go for this one today.
If you get Volume 1 of Calculus 3 definitely consider volume 2 as well."

"If it wasn't for these DVDs I wouldn't have passed calc 1 or calc 2.
I found out about these DVDs after I was failing calc 1, and with his help I got a 99/100 on my last test and final!!! I also passed the second calculus class with a 96%
He explains things point by point and works enough examples to drive the concepts home.
These DVDs are excellent an I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!"
