About the Author

Raymond A. Serway received his doctorate at Illinois Institute of Technology and is Professor Emeritus at James Madison University. In 2011, he was awarded an honorary doctorate degree from his alma mater, Utica College. He received the 1990 Madison Scholar Award at James Madison University, where he taught for 17 years. Dr. Serway began his teaching career at Clarkson University, where he conducted research and taught from 1967 to 1980. He was the recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Award at Clarkson University in 1977 and the Alumni Achievement Award from Utica College in 1985. As Guest Scientist at the IBM Research Laboratory in Zurich, Switzerland, he worked with K. Alex Müller, 1987 Nobel Prize recipient. Dr. Serway also was a visiting scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, where he collaborated with his mentor and friend, the late Sam Marshall. In addition to PHYSICS FOR SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS, Dr. Serway is the coauthor of PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS, Fifth Edition; COLLEGE PHYSICS, Ninth Edition; ESSENTIALS OF COLLEGE PHYSICS; MODERN PHYSICS, Third Edition; and the high school textbook PHYSICS, published by Holt McDougal. In addition, Dr. Serway has published more than 40 research papers in the field of condensed matter physics and has given more than 60 presentations at professional meetings. Dr. Serway and his wife Elizabeth enjoy traveling, playing golf, fishing, gardening, singing in the church choir, and especially spending quality time with their four children, nine grandchildren, and a recent great-grandson.

Chris Vuille is an associate professor of physics at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Daytona Beach, Florida, the world's premier institution for aviation higher education. He received his doctorate in physics at the University of Florida in 1989. While he has taught courses at all levels, including postgraduate, his primary interest and responsibility has been the delivery of introductory physics. He has received a number of awards for teaching excellence, including the Senior Class Appreciation Award (three times). He conducts research in general relativity, astrophysics, cosmology, and quantum theory and was a participant in the JOVE program, a special three-year NASA grant program during which he studied properties of neutron stars. His work has appeared in a number of scientific journals and in ANALOG SCIENCE FICTION/SCIENCE FACT magazine. In addition to this textbook, he is the coauthor of ESSENTIALS OF COLLEGE PHYSICS. Dr. Vuille enjoys playing tennis, swimming, and playing classical piano; he is a former chess champion of St. Petersburg and Atlanta. His wife, Dianne Kowing, is an optometrist for a local VA clinic. Teen daughter Kira Vuille-Kowing is a meteorology/communications double major at ERAU and a recent graduate of her father's first-year physics course. He has two sons--fifteen-year-old Christopher, a cellist and fisherman, and six-year-old James, an avid reader of Disney comics.

HASH(0xa694e990) out of 5 stars A solutions manual should be more complete March 13 2014
By Curt C - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The solutions in this solutions manual are excellent. Lots of detail and thorough explanations. The problem is that there aren't very many of them. There are hundreds of problems in this textbook, yet only a handful of problems appear in this solutions manual. When I purchased this, I realized that it wasn't a complete solutions manual, but had I realized exactly how incomplete it was, I probably wouldn't have spent the money.

In a physics class, there are hundreds of different types of problems. This is where the major failing of this solutions manual comes into play. There are certain types of problems that simply do not get covered in this manual. I would have been willing to pay a little more for a solutions manual that just had all of the odd numbers, or all of the even numbers. This is how my solutions manuals for my algebra, trigonometry, and calculus classes have always been structured.

As something of a supplemental aid, this solutions manual has it's place. Just know ahead of time that you are not getting a complete solutions manual. Personally, I wouldn't recommend this. I only used it a handful of times.

HASH(0xa694e318) out of 5 stars not helpful Oct. 22 2011
By my2cents - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this item but found it to be a total waste of money. There are select few problems from each chapter appearing in this solutions manual and vast majority of the time (more than 90%), the problem I needed to have an explanation for was not present in the solutions manual. Don't waste your money!

HASH(0xa694ea98) out of 5 stars You don't really need it. Oct. 29 2012
By Elizabeth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really didn't have much need or use for this solution manual. They only have selected problems. I found more useful help online.

You only need the text book, which I love!

Item in great shape and price was good. I didn't realize that this solutions manual only covered chapters 1 through 12 though.

HASH(0xa8dea7a4) out of 5 stars An OK book Feb. 23 2013
By Cullen Daniels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It's true this book only covers selected problems. I'm still working in this class so I can't give it a final rating.
