Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This algebra-based physics text contains many intriguing applications, including airbags, bungee jumping, photocopiers, highway mirages, and computer hard drives. The pedagogy has been updated to reflect new research on how students learn. Consequently, chapters now include two or three conceptual examples<-->each a sort of brief Socratic question and answer. Estimating examples show how to make order-of-magnitude estimates even when the data are scarce. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    Not a very good book for beginners!

    I took a full year of college physics in an online format and was frustrated quite often due to the lack of examples that were given. As someone else has mentioned, unless you have a great instructor, you will quickly learn to hate the subject.

    Great Book

    This is the best Physics book I've ever used! I used it in high school, and liked it so much I bought it to keep in my library.

    Nice and Nifty

    For a high school sophomore interested in physics, I found this to be a great book. The online extras came in handy and were a very nice addition. I taught the information in this book to myself and found it fairly easy to understand when you have pretty good reasoning skills. My high school also uses this book and it hasn't been found 'overwhelming' to masses of students, but rather a useful book.

    Lacks clarity needed for introduction courses

    This book, although extensive, lacks the clarity to be useful to beginning students. Unless coupled with a great instructor, this book would only serve to confuse. Many descriptions are much more roundabout than necessary for a good understanding of the subject.
