I ordered the book and got it on time and in the expected condition it was said to be.
Brandon Lykins
I don't really like it since the examples are somewhat poor and the concepts aren't explained as well as I would like.

This book is fantastic - loads of examples and solutions - very easy to read. clear path from start to finish.

I'm giving this a good score, for bio majors, future-technician-level chem majors, science-education majors, and ag-science majors, who don't really want to master calculus and its first science, physics.

I was helping an 11th grade student on a test in an AP Physics B class (not college-creditable for physics or engineering majors), and the information needed to solve the problems is to be found in Cutnell and Johnson. In a plug-and-chug way. To clarify, even though it's been 35 years since I took calculus-based physics, I could still recognize "what the teacher wanted", so it was perhaps easier for me to connect the problems with the textbook material. I could see it being really hard for the young student.

This isn't physics for physics-interested students, starting with frictionless particles and basic forces, applying the calculus to derive answers, based on conceptual grasping. But if you just need to memorize formulaicc**p, get through your two semesters and leave physics behind, this text is as good as anything out there.

I wouldn't want to use this approach in hs physics; for a totaly elective class attracting gifted math-and-science students, I'd much rather my students get some calculus down, and then show its wonderful fit with physics. It's a tragedy that very few schools are able to get/interested in getting their best students to calculus in 11th grade, or for the most-gifted 10th, but that's the way life is. It's really sad that a physics requirement is imposed on college students who aren't interested in physics, making them complete aalgebra-trig based courses that aren't really physics, but that's the way life is.

I bought this book for my High Schooler in AP Physics - algebra-based class.
This book is fantastic - loads of examples and solutions - very easy to read.
clear path from start to finish. The picture on front is honoring the olympic athlete
and the company that designed the prosthetic.

I coudn't suggest any better book for intro to physics.

I took a summer physics 1 course and wanted to buy a cheaper version of the recommended book. This book was perfect! It didn't have any writings inside and it look like it was new.

I love the illustrations and the way the concepts are written out. Especially the end of the chapter review. I think the problems get a bit more complex for their purpose. The book should show how one manipulates and combines equations together to solve for other variables. Not just expect students to figure it out. Not everyone is a math and physics majors.
