Obscure and Messy
on January 27, 2014
This book is quite difficult to read and follow. The paragraphs and pages are extremely messy and distracting. For example, as you are reading along it is very common to find something such as, "Figure 1.3," written in blue or "Equation 15.13." It frequently inserts math equations into the sentence without defining all of terms. Additionally, charts, graphs, example problems, and photos are strewed across every page and quickly become distracting as you attempt to read the chapter. I fully understand that this is a college-level text and that some previous knowledge of physics is expected, however, I find it to be of little help with the course. If you're required to use this text, I have two suggestions: buy another book to assist you or frequent "Khan Academy."
