Known for many years as Barron’s Easy Way Series, the new editions of these popular self-teaching titles are now Barron’s E-Z Series. Brand-new cover designs reflect all new page layouts, which feature extensive two-color treatment, a fresh, modern typeface, and more graphic material than ever charts, graphs, diagrams, instructive line illustrations, and where appropriate, amusing cartoons. Meanwhile, the quality of the books’ contents remains at least as high as ever. Barron’s E-Z books are self-help manuals focused to improve students’ grades in a wide variety of academic and practical subjects. For most subjects, the level of difficulty ranges between high school and college-101 standards. Although primarily designed as self-teaching manuals, these books are also preferred by many teachers as classroom supplementsand for some courses, as main textbooks. E-Z books review their subjects in detail, and feature both short quizzes and longer tests with answers to help students gauge their learning progress. Subject heads and key phrases are set in a second color as an easy reference aid. Topics covered in Barron’s E-Z Physics include motion, forces, energy, heat, wave motion, noise and music, electricity, magnetism, electromagnetic waves, the properties of light, and an introduction to nuclear physics.

Well organized. Much more readable than a typical high school textbook. I'm using it to prep for a Praxis teacher's exam. I did well in high school Physics and a couple colege courses, but that was 20 years ago. Every chapter is well organized. Topics are presented and discussed with plenty of useful examples. It covers both the concepts and the formulas and math. Plenty of practice questions scattered throughout each chapter, and more at the end; with answers and explanations for all at the end of the book. Some questions deal with concepts, others with the math and classic physics formulas. It's aimed at a basic physics level. Would definitely work for general high school physics. And could also probably help with freshman physics at a Community College. Would be a useful starter for University Physics, but you would probably need the college text also. If you're having trouble wading through the textbook they've given you in your High School Physics course, buy this and it will help you grasp the concepts, or even might be able to replace the textbook. (This is the first of the Barron's series I've tried.)
I have to say, for someone who doesnt know much physics, this book really helped plenty. This is an excellent source that really elaborates on all information on high school physics. This book provides explanations and visuals behind each important equation and concepts. It also provides solutions to problems they give you. Right now I'm teaching myself this topic for an upcoming exam and I have to say that Inam completely confident that I will pass with flying colors. Heck, I don't even need a teacher to lecture on this topic. This book without a school coarse definitely suffices.
