I have both Calculus WIZ and Calculus&Mathematica. They are both good,
but totally different:

Calculus&Mathematica is courseware which gives complete coverage in
depth. It is best used one lesson at a time in order.

Calculus WIZ is a supplement. You can jump around to any topic in any
order. It gives a little tutorial then examples and exercises.

Both of them are very useful for examples of Mathematica programming
that can be modified to your particular needs. C&M has much more
material on differential equations than Calculus WIZ. C&M is concerned
more with concepts (reformed calculus) more than WIZ which has a more
traditional approach.

If you don't have much time or aren't experienced with Mathematica then
Calculus WIZ is simpler to use and get started with.

Hope this helps.
