This review is from: College Physics (with PhysicsNow) (Hardcover)
This is honestly one of the most poorly written texts I have ever come across. I normally don't criticize textbooks because I'm quite a good learner, however this book really is just absolutely awful and completely useless. In fact, I've had to get 2 extra books to supplement this garbage just to clarify what the book says. It's really quite confusing, the explanations are far too short(or non-existant!) and the chapters just confuse you more than you already were. It provides about 2 small paragraphs of explanations, with one solved easy problem, then bombards you with 50 hard problems to do. I guess you're supposed to have spontaneously learned to solve them from somewhere else!
If I could give this book a zero or negative rating, I would.
