Good book if you have problems in physics, it explains you in a very clever way.
Victor C.
Unlike some other textbooks, this book functions as a bridge for me to the more advanced physics courses, without much difficulties arised.
Hui King Lam
Another great thing is that the book assumes you know certain things in some problems, so if you don't, you have to go look it up.

Being a freshmen of physics major in the first year of my university life, I engaged in three introductory physics courses, namely, mechanics, thermodynamics and optics, and electricity and magnetism. It was a surprise to me that all three courses recommended "Physics" by Resnick and Halliday as textbook. After one year of study, I found reading this book awarding and useful for my later and more in-depth studies. Although I didn't read the part on quantum physics and relativity, I'll give my comment on this book based on what I've read.
The book was written in an comprehensive way. No matter you 're a newcomer to physics or you already have some basis on general physics, the writers always give a careful and detailed desription on how they arrive at the results, and what assumptions they've made, so that you'll get a correct picture and understanding of the topic. Unlike some other textbooks, this book functions as a bridge for me to the more advanced physics courses, without much difficulties arised.
To improve the text, my idea is to introduce vector calculus in the E&M part, since it's essential for further studies on the topic.

The questions are decent, the book is clear, and there aren't too many colors (which i found is good because i could focus for a longer period of time). Uses many examples which i found useful. Overall a great book.

Haliday, Resnick, and Krane may all be well into the latter years in life, but the beautiful text they put together remains superb. It has been used, since it was first published in 1960, by many prominent universities. This text is the most rigorous text in the nation, if not the world. Its perfection stands in its title, fifth edition, which means its only been revised, including the latest edition, a total of 6 times since 1960. Compared to texts of similar authority that are entering 20th editions. The material is tough, but it prepares those who are willing to be avid students and those who are looking to be competitive. The book inquires the mind to open and bend. I reiterate that this text is an authority, because there is no use buying Schaum's or supplementary texts, because almost all the problems used by Schaum's and other "help" books draw their problems from a mix of three authoritative sources. This text is usually the main one for all physics, so in essence buying "help" books is like buying this book twice. Just doing the problems and exercises at the end of each chapter will prepare any student for any physics test there is. It engraves understanding that can be manipulated for the readers own use. I do have to say that like most text in physics and other subjects it doesn't mix topics from other sections like a real test would, but that again is unnecessary if the reader understands each chapter. Another great thing is that the book assumes you know certain things in some problems, so if you don't, you have to go look it up. One example being the astronomical unit. It's very open to getting the reader engaged. I recommend it for all physics courses and just used it for my mechanics and waves course. It's a text that someone can always go back to for a better understanding.

This textbook is excellent. It has an in-depth theory part, that explains everything!!! and it also has lots of challenging exercises and problems. I strongly recommend it for Engineering and Science undergraduates.

I never bought the Halliday-Resnick book when I studied several Physics courses as an engineering undergraduate, but today, several years after graduation, I am considering buying it because of its immense value as a reference book (and my work doesn't have anything to do with Physics). I still remember all the other books quoted HR at some point. The weak point is, however, that for students who need step-by-step, spoonfed explanations, this is not the book, as it requires the reader to have a good level of Maths.

Over 45 years have past since I used Resnick and Halliday, the 1966 edition. Are the newer editions dumbed down? Did they edit out the quality in the new editions.

I can only say that the 1966 was excellent and in the hands of quality professors and students willing to work, it was a wonderful intro to physics.
