Great Book, but riddled with small errors
This book is a great resource for both those who have taken physics, as well as those who haven't. It assumes very little knowledge of the subject matter, allowing you to gain a real understanding of the concepts just from reading the book. It's a fantastic resource. My only real complaint is that is has lots of small errors in it. Most of these have to do with using incorrect units, and are easily overlookable.Was this review helpful?

For the first time, Princeton Review has come out with the best book for physics. I recently took the June 2001 physics SAT test. Guess what book I used? Barrons, of course... the book everyone buys. I took the test, guessed on about 21 questions. The Barrons model tests are nothing like the real exams. Anyway, continuing on, I went to Barnes and Noble the next day and I glanced at all the physics book to see which one could have provided me better model tests. The Princton Review book had almost the same exact test as the real one!! Of course, I bought it. I'm retaking physics in Nov. Meanwhile, I got my June 2001 score and got a 670 (not good). So, seriously, don't buy Barrons because it has the name and reputation from other tests. Each test has its own best test prep books. Like for writing, Barrons is the best for it. For Math IC, use Kaplan. But, for physics, use Princeton Review. Trust me.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
