16 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Mark Twain on April 20, 2007
Format: Hardcover
I used this book for my intro to Electricity and Magnetism and for my Intro to Modern Physics - Light, optics, atomic and nuclear physics, quantum mechanics. It has plenty of theory in it in that often the book doesn't just present you equations, but derives them. Of course this isn't always the case as the math in this book doesn't go beyond Calc II and some basic, easy stuff from Calc III. Not only the theory, but it includes plenty of decent historical experimental results to explain how the laws come about. Also, the optional sections are decent as well. I especially liked the optional section regarding electromagnetism and frames of reference. The book also comes with alot of exercises, about half of which are just plug-and chug problems that waste time. But the others require you to know your concepts or to really think. Most of the Problems are decent and require thinking. However, some times the book can get too wordy. Also, the section on quantum mechanics isn't great, but you can't blame this book because quantum mechanics is best described using mathematics including linear algebra and beyond. This book is far better than the one by Serway as this book goes into more detail and offers better explanations and has better Problems.

Format: Hardcover
I used this text for my undergraduate freshman year physics course. This was a recommended text and pretty soon I found out why it was popular with students. I have come across few books with such clarity and depth as this one.
The way the material was presented, and the way the ideas were pushed through as well as the pace was as if this book was written with someone like me in mind.
An indispensable book for any physics student...

Format: Hardcover
An extremely authoritative, well written, practically error-free, physics book.
Very comprehensive and carefully compiled.
This book is not only an excellent book for students but also for practicing
engineers and scientists that need to go back to fundamentals.
A rich set of problems is a vailable with every chapter. Working on
those problems enhances the student comprehension of the topic addressed.

Great book for intro physics or bio students who have to take physics. Picks good problems and is EXCELLENT in conceptually explaining things. However, if you have a problem with no pictures...lol. Don't buy it.

This is the best book that one could use for physics. The problems are very challenging and the text is very instructive.
