They are pitched quite quickly at a complex level without giving you the necessary explanatory steps and assume the reader is already familiar with the basics. I found myself baffled after 1 chapter and had to go to other books for a better introduction to the subject. I think they are excellent for revision and for test questions if you are already familiar with the subject. If you are not a maths genius and expect to learn calculus from scratch with these books alone you may find yourself struggling.
How do you review a textbook when you may only cover 1/2 after 16 weeks? For starters, it is very much like any other calculus book except that it is reasonably priced. The book does well in highlighting important or notable math elements such as theorems or definitions. You do get a fair amount of example problems, but all of this is not so different than what you can get from other calculus books. Looking at Chapter 2, Limits are covered with the first sentence beginning, "Science fiction writers often imagine spaceships that can travel to far-off planets in distant galaxies." This can entice a student to read more but face it, all students prefer the notes of the professors and won't read the book.
The book does provide web links for interactive demonstrations. The downside is you need a Java browser plugin. Can we please keep Java to be nothing more than coffee.
It won't be until December that anyone or I can actually provide a truly accurate review of how well the book does. For the price, it is worth 5 stars. Until then, I'll have to utilize the Squeeze Theorem in Chapter 2.
