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.

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.
