With all the examples and the physics applied sections I feel as though the author tries to impress the world with everything that he knows about the subject. The book briefly explains the fundamentals and goes right into the examples, leaving the reader with the need to fill in gaps and make assumptions about the material.
The other book that I used was Fundamentals of Physics by Resnick and Walker. I found that book to be much more sound and focused on teaching the fundamentals first. It was a lot easier for me to learn from this book.
I just want to say that I'm not just a college kid complaining about something that didn't go my way. I made good grades in both physics classes. I am just giving my opinion of the two books.
In the end, we don't get to choose what books we use for our classes, but I just thought that I would share this.
