For PHYS 1410 and 1420: General Physics I and II

I did not find the examples in this book to be helpful. Many of the homework problems were much more complicated that anything that I was taught in class. Typical. My edition came with online access so I rarely use the paper version. Almost all of the homework problems have been worked on Yahoo Answers. Thank goodness!!

Excellent introduction to Physics.. Pra-U students sould use this as references.. The examples in this book are really clear and help us to master the basic concept of physics..
