1. The manual only covers half of the textbook. You have to buy another equally thin manual for the later half of the book. The publisher needlessly broke the manual into two thin volumes to squeeze more money out of students.
2. The manual only covers SOME problems. Less than half. This was problematic because, although the authors say they selected one of each TYPE of problem, this really wasn't true or very helpful. I had a few homework assignments where the manual did not help with a single one of the problems.
3. The manual's step-by-step instructions were seldom clear. The calculations skipped steps, and the explanations were weak and confusing.
Overall the manual was some help. It did usually help me with the problems that it included, but not always. It was useful, but not very, and certainly not worth $30 (or $60 if you buy both volumes). It's unfortunate that the popular textbook College Physics has such a weak manual, especially considering the rarity of effective physics teachers. I would not recommend this manual. Reading the chapters and referring to the examples provides about as much help, and at no additional cost.
I was doing that, but decided to buy the solutions manual to save time and get more trusted, concrete, specialized solutions.
I really regret that because I'll go to look up a solution and it isn't even included!
So they've omitted solutions to all the even problems, all the problems in Volume 2, and a few random ones! It doesn't matter if the problem is ranked hard or easy, they just decided to not include some for reason.
I guess the redeemable qualities are that it's useful (but not any more than google) to have a physical book when you're able to actually make use of it, and they include illustrations which help during chapter 5's force diagrams. I'd only buy it if it were ~$10.
Overall, this book can be helpful but is expensive (since you need to buy 2 for the entire textbook) and could be greatly improved.

I have to confess I really wanted a teacher's solution manual, as I am tutoring a student who is using this textbook. Read morePublished on June 22, 2014 by basstub
It only includes solutions to about a third of the odd problems, and not the multiple choice questions. This was a let down because I was hoping for answers to the even questions.Published on November 2, 2013 by Sally Harrison
