Any standard printed Calculus book is useful.

Test dates are going to be announced here one week ahead of time:

Calculators are not needed for the tests. You can use basic (not scientific) calculators.
No other electronic devices (cell phones, mp3 players, watches, etc.) are allowed.
No books, notes, cheat sheets, etc. are allowed.

Please review the
test taking etiquette.
