Product Description

The Ultimate Physics 2 Tutor, Volume 1 is a 3-DVD set that is 10 hours in duration and covers the physics of Thermodynamics by working example problems step-by-step.

This DVD picks up right where the "Ultimate Physics Tutor" ended in the study of Newtonian mechanics and is suitable for the advanced high school or university level.

The course is a 3 DVD set, 10 full hours in duration, and contains 11 chapters of material so you can be assured that all of the core topics are covered in detail.

What sets this DVD apart from the rest is that the concepts are taught entirely through example problems. The easiest way to learn Physics is to work problems as you learn the material - and that is exactly what this 3 DVD series provides.

You will immediately improve your problem-solving skills which will help on homework and exams, and you will have a reference for many of the commonly asked problems in Physics.

If you have a problem with your homework, simply find a similar problem fully worked on the Ultimate Physics 2 Tutor, Volume 1!

NOTE: This is Volume 1 of a two volume DVD series in Physics 2.
Physics 2, Volume 2 covers Waves and Oscillations and is available now on (ASIN: B0027RH2FK)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best There Is November 30, 2008
I'm a 59 year old Ph.D. in physicist with my own very successful research corporation. But what has bothered me throughout the past 30 years is how much I forgot due to non-use; or worse yet, what I did not take the time to learn properly due to academic work load, life problems, or pressures of one kind or another.

Well, after I discovered Mr. Gibson's DVD series in math and physics, I set myself to a course of completely reviewing all of my undergrad physics and math; if for no other reason, than to `feel' like a `complete' physicist. Literally, I bought every one of his DVDs (except for some on basic math) and am here to say that in my opinion, there is nothing like them anywhere; and especially, in universities today. These DVDs approach the subject matter in a pedagogical and not phenomenological way. Meaning, you learn by example, and hence have an immediate grasp of the principles which can then be applied to more sophisticated problems. I especially recommend all of his math DVDs from algebra up through advanced calculus, and his thermodynamics course (to date).

If you want to LEARN what math and physics are really about, and how to use them to solve serious, high level ground breaking physical problems, then I STRONGLY suggest that you get these DVDs. Textbooks are one thing. They purport to `teach' you the necessary theory and then apply it to practical applications. But I have to tell you that even when I was at university in the 1960s I never found this to be the case. It was as if the authors of those books were more in love with their own knowledge and intent on impressing young students with that knowledge, than they were in teaching a given discipline. And they cloaked this `approach' under that most infamous of phrases, "...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 10-hour course December 6, 2008
I own the DVDs and I felt compelled to write a review. I was stunned by the great quality of the presentation and of the author's profound knowledge in what he teaches.

Definitelly an excellent and wise purchace for those who are interested in the subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wish I had this set for my Physics II class! January 15, 2009
I bought the Physics I set and can't say enough about how Gibson teaches in these DVDs. Even as an older student, I found my professor was completely useless and I need to find my own way in succeeding with this subject (that I hate as well). Some how I stumbled on these DVDs and swear they contributed to my getting a decent B in my Physics I class. I was so beside myself when I found out there wasn't a set that covered my next semester, so I e-mail Mr. Gibson. About a day later, Jason e-mailed me back personally and told me that the second Physics set was to come out in the Fall of 2008....I needed it for my Spring 2008 class!!! Oh the horror, what was I going to do?!! Well, I did without and got a C :(

All of you are lucky to have the whole set now - so get them - you won't be sorry and you'll improve your grade! I wish I knew about him earlier when I had to take all my math courses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very accessible...valuable teaching aid February 16, 2009
My background is in physics and chemistry, but there are certain areas (like thermodynamics) that I don't use on a continual basis. As a result, some fundamental concepts become a little "fuzzy" over the years. These DVDs are great for both students and professionals to familiarize (refamiliarize) themselves with fundamental concepts.

The best part about these DVDs is that they're entertaining and enjoyable.
The problems are clever, but straight forward...they definitely help reinforce the concepts.

I will certainly continue to buy more...

5.0 out of 5 stars Best DVD supplement June 22, 2012
By Mike S.
Verified Purchase
If you look at many of Jason's math videos you will see that I have reviewed a lot of them. I am a big believer in his video series and I truly think, as someone who was horrible at math when I was younger, that they helped me a lot. I wanted to take a little different route in this review than in some of the others partly in response to some of the comments I have seen posted about the videos.

What it is:

Just what it says, a tutor through DVD. It is Jason standing in front of a white board doing physics problems. He does a few examples of varying difficulty from each kind of problem. It is a lecture style DVD. He does not (for the most part) derive any of the formulas, he just gives you the formulas you have to use and shows you how to apply them.

It is more geared toward algebra based physics classes than those that are calculus based. Although as anyone who has taken calculus based physics can tell you, a lot of times you don't really even use calculus to solve the problems. The calculus part of the class is to show how the formulas were derived, but when you solve the problems you primarily use algebra. So, even though it will more closely resemble the lecture from a physics class that only requires algebra as a prerequisite, the principles you are learning are the same. He does go into a little bit of calculus when describing the area under a curve in the PV diagrams, but for the most part he leaves that out.

What it is not:

It is not a rah-rah physics is great DVD. While you certainly get a sense that Jason is passionate about physics and knows his stuff, it is designed to help you learn how to do physics problems.
