| You can buy Early Transcendentals, Single Variable by Briggs and Cochran at the UConn Coop, online directly from the publilsher, and many other places. CAUTION: Make sure you get MyMathLab Plus codes bundled with the tex. Single Variable volume is used for both Math 1131 and Math 1132. You will need to purchase the multivariable volume for Math 2110.
We chose the single volumes as the recommended text since we were able to have MyMathlab Plus codes (for life of edition) bundled with both semesters text.
However, you are able to purchase combined versions (heavy book for 1131-1132-210).
The publisher has set up a special web page, http://vig.pearsoned.com/store/home?url=/uconn/calculus, for UConn students to purchase a text online with the MyMathlab plus codes bundled.
