I got an 800 on the SAT II Physics using this book! It is a good resource for any high school Physics student. Well written and in-depth, I found this book to be the best study guide I could find for the SAT II Physics exam.
I admit that physics does not come naturally to me, but this book simply did not meld well with my school curriculum. Not only did the book use many confusing symbols, but the explanations were not thorough enough and often left me partially in the dark and struggling to comprehend. I thought I was much better off not having looked at the book, since what little help it provided came from the somewhat less perplexing diagrams. Honestly, I preferred my textbook the most, and then two other review books after it. Perhaps this book would be helpful if you thoroughly understand all the physics concepts and workings already, and if confusing greek and other strange symbols do not bother you.
