    This book is helpful

    I found the information in this book to be helpful for college physics. Key concepts and formulas are provided without overloading the reader with too much information.

    More Utterly Confused!!!

    How can you propose to simplify physics, by throwing problems out there without giving the reader much background about the relevance of a particular topic? My guess is that the title was more a ploy to sell books than to teach physics. Not worth anyone's money.
