Physics II For Dummies 4.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.

Size of formulas was fine using the Nook PC Reader on a 15 inch monitor. Should also certainly be fine down to 12 inch monitor. Others had said the formulates were not readable - too small for the "Physics I for Dummies" stand alone Nook Book. This review is for the 2 book " e-book bundle, of "Physics I and Physics II for Dummies" bundle product. Not sure if the format of this content is the same as if purchased in the stand alone "Nook Books" which are not advertized as E-Books. I have also, Not Tried IT Yet, on a smaller screened Nook device. That is why I only gave it four (4) stars - formulas may, or may not, be too small on a small Nook Device.

Made physics easy to learn

I tried reading it on my Nook HD + and the formulas were tiny little pictures. I could feel my eyes strain a little to see them as they are in little white squares. I switched to my Nook Glowlight and it is far easier to read there however, the formulas are still very small. The formatting is weird too, like they used the wrap around option in Word. I have no doubt that this is a good book, however these two issues make it unusable for me.

I bought the paperback versions of "Physics 1 for Dummies" and "Physics 2 for Dummies" to brush up on 1st year college physics to help my son prepare for the AP exams. These are much better books than the "AP Physics B Crash Course" -- far fewer mistakes in the text and equations, much clearer explanations of the material, and a writing style that points out that physics can be both fun and interesting.
