Review

If my kid were taking Regents Physics, I'd buy this for him; if I were teaching Regents Physics for the first time, I would want this book available to me. -- Greg Jacobs, author of "5 Steps to a 5 Physics B&C"

5.0 out of 5 stars Succint and applicable May 4, 2011
By sluggo
Format:Paperback
Being a high school physics teacher and having used or read through many different textbooks, I really appreciate Fullerton's book. I feel that it can be very accessible to my students because of the way it is clearly written. Many school boards want textbooks that not only provide content but also provide pedagogy. And while I can agree with this sentiment, it has been my experience that physics textbooks are typically geared towards university students and contain difficult text. Make no mistake about it, we may think that our top physics students can read a textbook like ourselves (adults), but our extra years of experience allows us to be a lot more efficient with scientific literacy.

With APlusPhysics, each chapter begins with clear objectives. This helps the students understand exactly what they are supposed to learn from the chapter (a key to successful learning). Fullerton then provides text at an appropriate reading level (somewhere between junior science and honors university science), clearly followed by appropriate sample problems. I think this book makes for a very good learning tool and study guide, and can benefit many different students.

Format:Paperback
I am a college student struggling with my first year physics course. The required text for my school is very difficult to follow and written to a higher level of understanding than you would expect to find in a survey course. There is only one student in my class that can easily follow our textbook. While studying for a test, I went online to look for videos to help me. I came across Dan Fullerton's videos and book. His book covers the exact same material that I am studying, yet it is easier to follow and understand. There are plenty of exercises to help reinforce the material. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is having a hard time with entry level college physics. Quite frankly, I wish my school would adopt his book as our official text. More students would be successful using his material. If you are struggling with a physics course, I strongly encourage you to buy this book. It is not expensive (especially compared to college textbook prices) and is worth its weight in gold!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic buy for students of all ages! May 4, 2011
By J.K.
Format:Paperback
As a teacher, I know how hard it can be to teach the specifics associated with an overarching concept. With that said, I found this book to do an excellent job in making difficult concepts accessible to students. Not only does it pack a tremendous amount of information between its front and back pages, but the information is presented in a fun and tangible way. Each chapter builds upon the ideas presented in the previous chapters to help reinforce and organize a reader's/student's thoughts before moving on to more difficult concepts.

In short, I highly recommend this book. With model and sample problems (and answers), video links, and other extra help options, this "review book" goes beyond basic review and helps to instruct on all levels.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dan Fullerton is a Genius! December 7, 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One of the most difficult things in the world is to make the complex simple and understandable. Dan Fullerton has done this extremely well. If I can understand physics, anybody can.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT WORK May 6, 2011
Format:Paperback
This book is a fun and exciting way to help students review and prepare for the essentials of physics. The illustrations and information is captivating and motivating. I found myself learning more about physics than I had known before and to be able to see that I was on target was outstanding. I have a large family and it is something I would encourage my children to use as a resource and educational guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Resource March 29, 2014
Format:Paperback
The combination of Dan's Regents Physics Essentials and APlusPhysics.com videos have work as a great resource for students who were struggling to translate their understanding of physics concepts into success on Regent's style test questions. This book has worked as a guide to help my students understand what they really need to know to be successful on the Regents exam and on tests. I have given this book to a few students and watched their test scores improve. Great Resource!!
