Elementary Differential Geometry : Andrew Pressley :
Differential geometry is concerned with the precise mathematical formulation of some of these questions, and with trying to answer them using calculus techniques. It is a subject that contains some of the most beautiful and profound results in mathematics, yet many of them are accessible to higher level undergraduates. Nothing more than first courses in linear algebra and multivariate calculus are required, and the most direct and straightforward approach is used at all times. Numerous differebtial illustrate both the ideas in the text and the examples of curves and surfaces discussed there.
The second edition has extra exercises with solutions available to lecturers online. There is additional material on Map Colouring, Holonomy and anderw curvature and various additions to existing sections.

Instead of covariant derivatives, use derivatives with respect to local coordinates. Use moving frames without mentioning connections.
