Inconsistent May 7 2013
By ChicagoRedSox - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I'd say this is a great textbook if you have an easy professor that only asks questions like "A 1m long solenoid with 25 turns carries a current of 3A. What is the magnetic field?". However, if you have a professor that challenges you and asks difficult questions on your problem sets, tests, etc., you may find it lacking. Some areas are explained quite well (I'd say this applies earlier on with the "easier" topics) and others barely at all (most of the later, more complex topics). It got to the point where I wrote in my notes things like, "Ask professor wtf this means".
The book has lots of nice pictures, but if you actually want both a qualitative and quantitative understanding, there are far better resources. Obviously, most looking at this book have to buy it because it's assigned by their professor, but if you're just searching for a good reference on the subject, go with Halliday & Resnick instead.

Im so sorry if this is your required text Dec 2 2013
By R. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book, I have a reserved a special place of hatred in a dark corner of my soul for the memory of this book. First, the author throws around new variables, maybe he will define them, maybe he wont. But rest assured if he does define them, it will be buried in a dense paragraph of material as an aside and never mentioned again. Second, I think Randall actually hates undergrads. Nothing is straight forward in this text, Dr. Knight delights in using subscripts and unique variables and assumes the reader will find their meaning obvious and follow along. Plan on using Khan and lots of hyper-physics to get an understanding of the material. Physics is about figuring out how to apply lots of disconnected formulae, and arrive at the desired data. The author seems to take delight in hiding these formulae and obfuscating the simplicity of them. If you are one of the poor souls that must shell out 200 bucks for this mess, use Khan and find the hyper-physics website, its the only way you will survive first year physics with this text

Best Physics book I've had for class March 19 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
--Pros--
Much easier to read than many other physics books I've read.
Covers a lot of topics
--Cons--
Huge
Expensive
Maybe not as in-depth on some subjects as textbooks specific to that topic.

Format: Loose Leaf Verified Purchase
It is ok reading material.. but physics in general needs to be technical so I cant say anything too good or bad about this book
Too heavy Nov. 13 2013
By Michelle Pocsik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's way too heavy and I'm not sure if thats a reason to knock off stars, but I wish I bought the loose leaf so I could carry a few chapters at a time.
