True. And the OP is asking about the best among those "Calculus 3 books". I used Marsden & Tromba myself. It worked but I do not recommend it.Calculus 3 books covers those topics.

My calculus book was awesome. It covered everything from pre-cal through advanced calc. Had all that you mentioned and more.

The older editions are much cheaper...
The OP has pointed out at some specific topics (multivariate & vector calculus). Plus he never mentioned Calculus 3, you mentioned Calculus 3. Many universities many course names. He only needs advice on textbooks not on course names.I don't consider advanced calculus to be calculus 3. Since in some institutions, adv calc is undergrad real analysis.

fair enoughMentioning Calculus 3 points him in the right direction.
Thanks everyone, for the inputs here, I wanted to book in calculus covering these topics for the following reasons.
1. To prepare for the GRE math subject test
2. To prepare for the MFE programs.
Do you think that the book mentioned with regard to calculus 3 helps me in these ?
Thanks

My university uses Marsden & Tromba's Vector Analysis along with Michael Spivak's Calculus on Manifolds.
