From the Publisher:

Designed for students majoring in business, economics, or life sciences, this mathematically correct and student-friendly introduction to applied calculus begins with an optional library of elementary functions, presents the basics of differential and integral calculus, and then provides self-contained explorations of multivariable calculus, differential equations, Taylor polynomials and infinite series, probability and calculus, and trigonometry. The emphasis throughout is on computational skills, ideas, and problem solving, and a great variety of graded exercises and worked examples gives students extensive practice with real-world applications.

From the Back Cover:

Barnett/Ziegler/Byleen, Applied Calculus, eighth edition provides comprehensive coverage of the topics essential to the mathematical development of students majoring in business, economics, social sciences, or life sciences. The emphasis throughout is on computational skills, ideas, and problem solving—rather than on mathematical theory. Derivations and proofs are included only when necessary.

The Barnett texts are known for their varied applications and thorough exercise sets. The eighth edition continues this high standard. The text is mathematically correct, accessible, and student-friendly. Applied Calculus succeeds at preparing students to deal with calculus topics when they encounter them outside the mathematics classroom.
