Appropriate for the third semester in the college calculus sequence, the Fourth Edition of  Multivarible Calculus maintains the student-friendly writing style and robust exercises and problem sets that Dennis G. Zill is famous for.  Ideal as a follow-up companion to Zill's first volume, or as a stand alone text, this exceptional revision presents the topics typically covered in the traditional third course, including Vector-Valued Functions, Differential Calculus of Functions of Several Variables, Integral Calculus of Functions of Several Variables, Vector Integral Calculus, and an Introduction to Differential Equations.
