# Books for calculus?

I have worked out my knowledge on pre-calculus and i want to formally begin learning the subject. I would be gratified if i could get some help on this matter.

i would like a book that doesn't just try to strengthen problem solving skills, but also tries to make the user understand the subject. a book with a fair number of illustrations(graphs.. etc.) would be nice. obviously i would like the book to be user friendly as i want to possess it as a self learner would.

i am a beginner,so i wouldn't want anything too rigorous right now and. I would like to keep away from $$apostol$$ or other books of the sort as of now

any suggestions? :D i would be truly indebted

Even I don't know much of Calculus, though I'm keen at learning the subject this year. As far as I've heard, RD Sharma XI and XII is a good place for theory. Haven't tried it myself though. Maybe @Parth Lohomi may suggest you something, he's a level 5.

Thanks I would suggest books such as integral and differential calculus by Shanti Narayan and for basics just go through questions of "problems in calculus in one variable by I.A Maron" , N. piskonovs integral and differential calculus. THESE WILL BE SUFFICIENT
