This was the text book used in my honors physics class. Though it may not go into extremely advanced issues, it does touch on A LOT of material, including basic collisions, fluids, rotational motion, relativity (a bit), and even some quantum mechanics. This book is definitely useful to anyone who wants a better education in basic physics and a start into somewhat beginner's advanced physics.

I've had this book assigned to me when I was a high school exchange student in Yankeeland. I've grown to like it so much that I wanted to outright buy it when the semester ended and it was time for me to go home. However when they've told me it costs $85 (a used one per se but in a very good condition) I had second thoughts. I've wanted to buy the book ever since hoping that its price will drop to a reasonable level after a few years.

Still, if you're interested in physics, be sure not to miss out on this one. I'd give an arm and leg to see such book being published in my native language (Hungarian). It's not for university students per se, but that's the point: it explains everything in plain English, without some distracting advanced math :P

I am currently using this book at my high school. It is not a good textbook. It's disorganized, and hard to understand. On top of that, it gives examples to teach problems, then gives problems that are nothing like the examples.

I am currently in the process of doing a historical comparison of past high school physics texts to assess the extent to which they meet current physics' needs, and prepare students to do advanced courses in college. On going through this text I've found it admirably meets those criteria, and also features a robust quantitative approach.

'Conceptual physics', of course, is fine as far as it goes and one needs to grasp principles before getting into the more difficult problems. But ultimately physics is a quantitative science and the properly prepared HS student needs to meet that objective. This textbook fulfills that goal admirably.

This is an excellent Physics manual and defines what a good physics textbook should be about. Excellent graphics and well defined explanations. A great resource for teacher and student alike.

There's lots of stuff. There's also stuff in here that should be explained a little better. I tried learning from reading this and sometimes I would get confused but that's where a teacher comes in or reading it over and over helped some too.

Good textbook, my highschool uses it.

Textbook equivalent of Windows 8. It seems to be more about locking the user into infrastructure and directing to products and services than teaching physics. I also do not like the overall approach. Physics is highly interconnected. This book seems more directed at test takers than people learning physics in order to actually apply it. In my engineering and science work I still refer to my old Halliday and Resnick. Had I used Holt I am sure it would have been lost in a move at some point along the way.

I have used a number of physics texts while tutoring. For non calculus physics I recommend Giancoli. For calculus based physics Giancoli is a great supplementary text.
