Phil, You didn't say why you are studying calculus, so it is a little hard to give you advice. However, if you are planning to major in a science, math, or engineering you will find Mathematica to be a very useful tool. More specifically, "Calculus Wiz" and books such as "Animating Calculus" by Wagon and Packel will definitely give you a deeper understanding of calculus. The things you will be able to do "beyond the textbook" will let you run circles around most other students, and maybe even the professor! Good luck with your studies.
