One of the downsides of buying an e-book is that you can't actually thumb through and see if it's worth it. I bought this book for my college physics class hoping for some help- out of luck! This book just explains in words the concepts and does very little problem examples. The examples that are shown are so dumbed down and simple that it's just plain ridiculous. It covers huge concepts in 3-4 pages, which barely skims the surface. Money down the drain.
