Stewart's CALCULUS, Fifth Edition has the mathematical precision, accuracy, clarity of exposition and outstanding examples and problem sets that have characterized the first four editions. Stewart retains the focus on problem solving and the pedagogical system that has made the book a favorite of students and instructors in a wide variety of colleges and universities throughout the world. In this Fifth Edition, he has made hundreds of small improvements: new examples, additional steps in existing examples, updating of data in existing examples and exercises, new phrases and margin notes to clarify the exposition, references to other sources and web sites, redrawn art, and references to the TEC CD (Tools for Enriching Calculus). These refinements ensure that students and instructors have the best materials available. The number of pages in the book, however, remains unchanged from the 4th edition. Further support for students and instructors is now available through a vast array of supplementary material.
A side note for people who may be "needing" the 8th edition. From what I have seen 6, 7, 8 have the exact same questions in the same order if you go by topic. In other words, you can probably get away with using this version without any trouble.
I still keep this book on my shelf and reference it from time to time. In fact, last night while doing some Fluid Mechanics, I had to look up the gradient operator in this text. Boom! It came right back.
I had the luxury of using the solution manual, both of them actually, this really helped me when I got stuck. Of course, don't just copy out of it seeing as though you won't have one on exam day.
Diving into the more difficult questions of each section is rewarding and makes you want to be the best student you can me. I wish that I had more free time to devote to TRULY mastering everything in here.
As with all textbooks, the price is steep. I am not sure I can say almost $300 is worth it for everyone...but if you are in for the long haul with Calculus, I would recommend this as a worthy use of funds...but I may just be a math nerd.
