Resnick's explanations and in-line examples make each and every section of this book a piece of cake to learn. With each chapter are extensive Excercises, Problems, Multiple Choice, and even Computer Programming Problems associated with the chapter. If you are afraid of passing a Calculus-Based Mechanics class, and your instructor choose this book, fear NO MORE! Five Stars!

This is a book about physics which make for us difficult to understand which one is right this one or which one we have studied earlier. I appriciate RESNICK and HALIDAY to give us such a book which can not only can but it is helping new students to change and correct their views about Physics. This book is very conservative about the point of reference which we study in PHYSICS. I admit that frame of referance is very important in Physics and also in our daily life but not so much that we take distance negative because of out "Frame of Referance". So i think that this must be corrected,so that we will not hate our mind to which can not understand the book.
