Thank you!

I think I'll stick to Spivak, then. Technically I've been taught the high-school style calculus twice, once in high-school and once in college, but the former was mediocre and the latter was ridiculously abridged and compressed, and I usually employed the "study one day before exam" strategy. The high-school style calculus would be most likely adequate for me but I think I should try at least once a Rigorous Math Textbook.
