Textbook: Calculus: Concepts and Contexts. Single Variable, Stony Brook University Edition, by James Stewart, Brooks/Cole Publishing, 2006.
Check the syllabus to determine which sections will be covered each week, and come to class having read those sections. Reading the textbook will greatly increase your comprehension of the lectures and enable you to ask useful questions in class. Furthermore, the lecturers and recitation instructors will not always be able to cover all of the subject material for which you will be responsible. Note that mathematical texts are not meant to be read like novels: very often you will come across passages that must be read several times before they make sense to you.
