    I have realised that almost everyone tells me to study the calculus by spivak, and from the arguments in it's favour make it unbeatable, it seems that nobody can learn analysis without reading that book. I am studying ONLINE at Paul's notes and Calculus by James Stewart, is my approach/route towards analysis is weak? do I have to restart calculus by reading Spivak? P.S. I am a self-taught student, and I have nearly finished calculus 2 using paul notes.

      Personally i never used Spivak even though people strongly told me to. I also self studied many concepts using various other resources and i believe if the concept is clear in your head then u do not need to restart. u r good to go
