I used these in my undergrad and recommend them to my students now.
Paul is legit.
Absolutely, but it worked best for me once I had all ready encountered the concepts in class lecture or text. It's clear and concise and especially useful for the day before the exams when you wanna glance over all the concepts and examples.
Never used Paul’s online notes but would definitely recommend the MIT online videos and the 3b1b series on calculus, that’s how I self studied :)

Do i need to know anything to understand 3blue1brown? I started it once and assumed it was beyond me and stopped
mmmm, 3b1b is really high-level conceptual stuff. IIRC there really isn't much in the way of actual mechanics shown in the Essence of Calculus series.
Watch MIT OCW videos for the mechanics of actually doing calculus, then follow up with 3b1b to solidify the concepts.
3b1b is amazing, the calculus and linear algebra series' are both amazing. They don't assume much at all. I'd sort of recommend the linear one first, but they're both independent series
I’ve used/use them. They are good. Look for the cheat sheets.
The cheat sheets for algebra / trig / calc are amazing. I have them printed and keep them in my math binder and I reference them daily.
Paul is Legit. PatrickJMT - Legit... KhanAcademy- legit
PatrickJMT got me through calc 1 and 2.
YES! It is a very thorough walkthrough of most concepts encountered in undergrad calculus, and even diff eq. I got through calc 2 and 3 because of it! There’s plenty of examples and practice problems of varying difficulty.
Paul's notes pretty much got me through my universities math program.
Absolutely yes! I used them frequently when doing Calc 1/2/3.
I’ve used them both as an undergrad and grad. They’re very useful for an immediate lookup.
Absolutely yes. First place I send my students
Yep, I use them all the time to learn new concepts I didn't happen learn in university (like Fourier series) or review concepts I don't use very often (like differential equations). Takes a real talent to write up explanations and derivations that are so easy to follow and understand, and the examples are excellent.
hes great if you want to study for a test, but there are better sources for learning calculus. depends on your goals
Yes they are comprehensive and do not skip steps without noting it. However, imo it geared towards folks who already have a fairly strong background and the notation can make you a little uneasy.
That said, I think it is an excellent supplement to lectures and a textbook
Paul is my dawg
My cal teacher recommended his notes
Oh yea. Helped me a lot.
Idk who that is but Professor Leonard absolutely saved my Calc 1 and Calc 2 grades
Yes I do. It is excellent. I have used that more than a decade ago and it still gets updated the last time I looked at it recently.
I recommend working trough it . It is easily generally very understandable and a very quick way to move forward to get into business. I think it works best as the first introduction to this type of material. But it has limitations. Somebody commented it is very thorough. It definately is , but it does not always go really heavy deep into theory . At that point look for more advanced stuff to deepen your understanding.
I recommend multiple books but maybe two or three is enough until you get into hoarding. Check out the free openstax books. Very good as well. Commercial book is college algebra by barnett and also the commercial the tan calculus series which is widely in use.
It’s a good review guide to look over before taking a test. But don’t depend on it.
