This text was written as a prequel to the APEXCalculus series, a three–volume series on Calculus. This text is not intended to fully prepare students with all of the mathematical knowledge they need to tackle Calculus, rather it is de-signed to review mathematical concepts that are o[en stumbling blocks in the Calculus sequence. It starts basic and builds to more complex topics. This text is written so that each secࢢon and topic largely stands on its own, making it a good resource for students in Calculus who are struggling with the supporting mathemathics found in Calculus courses. The topics were chosen based on experience; several instructors in the Applied Mathemathics Department at the Virginia Military Insࢢtute (VMI) compiled a list of topics that Calculus students commonly struggle with, giving the focus of this text.
