    Why are you looking for this? To help yourself? or do you need the book because it's required of you?

    If it's for help don't bother with the books, just head over to 'JustMathTutoring.com'.

    Spivak's Calculus book is high recommended. While I have never personally used it his other books (Calculus on Manifolds) are very well written.

    yes you are right but in the first round in school competition we have 3 or 4 problems in calculus and 2 or 3 other problems for olympiads, in city math olympiad maybe 2 are from calculus and 4 for olympiads then i national math olympiad we have all problems for olympiad and maybe 0 or 1 calculus.
