There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Hardcover Verified download. This textbook was incredibly helpful and life-saving in the two semester physics sequence. It is well-written and I enjoyed reading it just for fun.
The book has been Pearsonized in the sense that there are millions of problems in it that you will probably never do.
However, this allows instructors to pick problems that match their pedagogy and allows students to have plenty of other practice problems. Also, the MasteringPhysics problems seemed to be easier than the textbook problems. My first course in Mechanics was much easier than the second semester. Sadistic professors may assign these problems without covering the necessary material in class.
So make sure you have a kind and effective professor! With that said, this book is entirely appropriate for self-study and for traditional courses.
But be careful when you sign up for the second semester.
Freshman math classes college algebra through calculus III can easily be covered in a short period of time by anyone who is mathematically sophisticated. It is not necessarily the same for natural sciences, and I learned this the hard way in Physics II by taking it in a 5-week summer session. Unless you are entirely confident, over-prepared, and already experienced with electronics in some way, please take my advice and complete this course in the long semester.
The alternative is very stressful. The writing is clear, and the typesetting is beautiful. You will want to keep it on your shelf if you intend to go further with physics. Was told I didn't need this book and that any edition would work. Paperback Verified download. This is not the same as the normal edition. The global edition does not have the same questions as the other edition.
If you are assigned homework for a class from the book you will need the other edition. This book takes you from A to Z in physics and is very clear as it handles topics step by step. It also includes several real life examples and links to Phet simulations which makes things more interesting.
What can I say? I wish I knew Physics already so I wouldn't have to lug this bad boy around!!! What does this thing weigh anyway??? All jokes aside, the size of this book indicates how powerful the contents of it really are, and the tools contained cover to cover will help you understand the world we live in and understand concepts that you wouldn't be able to otherwise.
Not to mention, you could knock out an assailant with this monster!! I love it!!! I used this book for electricity and magnetism, so that is what I will be reviewing for mechanics, I used Solomons.
For an introductory text, I can't imagine you can get much better than this. The concepts, for the most part, are explained very well and are enhanced by a wide range of homework problems. If you read the book and do the homework problems, you should not have a very hard time getting through any introductory physics course. The topics are well organized and the summaries at the end of the chapters are excellent for quick formula and concept references and building note sheets if your instructor allows them on tests.
The book actually uses a good amount of math compared to Solomons which makes you forget that you're taking a calculus based physics course.
I would have liked to see a little more utilization of differential equations and linear algebra, but this is only an introductory text, so fairly light math should be expected. Although I liked the book for the most part, I felt it didn't emphasize optics very well. After reading through interference and diffraction, I really didn't feel like I understood interference and diffraction as well as, say, Gauss's Law or circuits. For the most part, optics seems to be covered very qualitatively and very light at that.
There is also no coverage of Maxwell's Equations in differential form, Lorentz Transformations in in matrix form, or circuits in imaginary number form. Overall, I enjoyed the book. I used it as my main learning material for my introductory physics courses and, after reading, I feel I was left with a good grasp of introductory physics, so I feel this book has served its purpose quite well. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn introductory physics. Loose Leaf Verified download.
