Error City !,
This review is from: Schaum's Outline of Physics for Engineering and Science (Paperback)
The exposition is fairly engaging, and the problems are interesting. However, the answers to many are clearly wrong. For example, in SP 14.14 on pg 179, one can easily see that the answer given is not even dimensionally correct. I would estimate 10% of the problems have incorrect answers. I stopped reading after chapter 14. Too much time is wasted on such problems, only to find YOUR answer WAS correct. I doubt the book was ever proof-read; any physics graduate student worth his/her salt would have caught these errors.
