    If you're doing mei, don't you pick 3/5 topics to do? The book you choose might depend on what topics you pick...

    Ah, I thought it would be one big book.

    The options I'm interested in are:
    #2 - Limiting processes
    #3 - Mutlivariable calculus

    I'm not doing MEI... I'm just interested in learning the material.

    Just what I was looking for, manps. Thanks.

    I used "OCR" when I tried searching for it on amazon, which I guess is why I didn't find anything.

    Can anyone recommend a good textbook?
    Engineering Mathematics 5th Edition (K.A. Stroud)

    Thats got all the A Level Multivariable Calculus you'll need and more. But you may like to go a little further on to stuff like multiple integrals etc and the best book(s) to do that with are:
    Advanced Engineering Mathematics 4th Edition (K.A. Stroud),
    Div, Grad, Curl, and All That (H.M. Schey)

    ps. I don't have shares in K.A. Stroud's Publishing comapny, it's just their the best books on the market.

    Yes, this book is brilliant. Its the first place I look when I get stuck, and has been excellent to help me teach myself over the past few years.
    I wouldnt suggest getting the MEI textbook. It will probably gloss over loads of important things and not go into nearly enough detail - ie just enough to cover the P6 syllabus.

    The MEI P6 text book is great; I've been using it and found it easy to follow and understand. It (obviously) covers everything on the syllabus and its written in such a way to help self-study also.
