Of all the science textbooks that I've used in college, this book written by Khan had to be one of the worst. His explanations on major theories and concepts are pooor. He never fully described the functions of major parts of equipments found in the text. In addition, he failed to include review questions at the end of every chapter. Everyone knows that questions at the end of chapters are very useful for studying for exam. Overall, the content of the book is poor and isn't worth the cost.
