    Too Many Errors and Wrong Characters in Digital Version

    I want to say better things about this book, but there are just too many errors in it. If you're already reasonably confident in your physics abilities, you'll probably find it a reasonable source for practice.

    If you're new to the subject, you might unfortunately convince yourself that physics isn't for you when you can't force your answers to match the book.

    Lastly, the malformed characters in the digital version are a serious letdown. Of course, this book is *tons* cheaper than buying a college text, so maybe you won't mind.
