I used this book for three semesters of undergrad physics, doing it pretty much from cover to cover, and it definitely eased my learning experience. The text was, for the most part, easy to understand, and the problems are great in helping to ensure the ability to apply the principles. Although there were definitely some chapters I thought were better done than others i.e. wasn't a big fan of the later chapters on semi-conductors, etc, this book was as good as any introductory science text I've used.Was this review helpful?
