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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
