A K Peters/CRC Press. Cipra has written one of the most entertaining pieces I have read in a long while.

A Calculus Supplement. Differentiating Right From Wrong. Derivatives Again, and the Fine Art of Being Crude. Reducing to Special Cases.

AND HOW TO FIND THEM BEFORE THE TEACHER DOES by Barry Cipra (3d e. AK Peters, 2000, ISBN 1-56881-122-5). This is a small excellent book for calculus students (and calculus teachers, actually); think of it as a resource on number sense - and therefore idiot-proofing - on the level of calculus. A lot of it is about the meta-process: how to think mathematically, which is the indispensable foundation for being able to concoct and justify answers that one doesn't actually know cold. That, in turn, is THE crucial skill for taking tests - and for life, come to that.
