Good as reference. The application can be understand easily...
I read this entire textbook in high school. It was a nice tool for learning more about physics.
I am looking for ebook
This book presents the material quite clearly -- provides a great explanation to historically daunting material, making it easier to grasp.

The class in which I am reading it, though... 3 quarters of Physics in 8 weeks does not a good foundation make.

ini buku tpb juga, kami biasanya nyebut "buku giancoli", hiksss.... buku yang sangat menyeramkan, fisika..oh fisika..
Enak dibaca dan mudah dimengerti kalau suka fisika, kalau ga suka, ya cuma enak dibaca aja..hahhahaha

Recommends it for: yg belajar fisika
Shelves: science
bahasanya mudah dimengerti, aplikatif, gampang, cetakannya bagus, contoh soalnya mudah diikutin tapi luar biasa, jau2 lebih bagus daripada buku bikinan Sutrisno dari institut tetangga sebelah..
Anyone a physics person?! I am severely struggling. I've never been much of a science/math girl...
Really not great. At all. Am depending on other texts to explain things more clearly and concisely.
Q: How do you teach physics without using calculus?
A: This book.
And this is the reason I'm not reading anything else...
