You've come to the right place for a quick and effective way to learn physics! Easy Physics Step-by-Step is based on the idea that the quickest route to learning this science is building a solid foundation in the basics. You won't find a lot of pointless discussion; instead, you get an original, step-by-step approach to learning physics, with important concepts linked together by clear explanations, appropriate exercises, and helpful answers. The first steps introduce you to the fundamentals of physics, allowing you to grasp the subject almost immediately. Gradually, a series of interconnected steps takes you from simple to more challenging concepts at your own pace, with a variety of increasingly difficult exercises to practice what you've learned. After working through these exercises, you'll have a better grasp of the subject along with the knowledge and skills you need to master physics with confidence. Easy Physics Step-by-Step features: A unique building-block approach to mastering physics, Down-to-earth explanations of important concepts, Helpful notes to avoid common missteps, Exercises to help you test what you've learned and measure progress

Errors galore! Didn't even make it past page six before encountering a glaring and obvious error. The SI in SI units does not stand for 'Standard International' as mentioned in the book, it is taken from the French Le Système international d'unités. Ok, ok...maybe that's a small nit to pick, but in a chapter devoted largely to precision and accuracy, I found it annoying. Make it all the way to page ten and spot the second glaring error in which 15.5 minutes is purportedly equal to 1,110 seconds. Multiplication ain't what it used to be. Ok, ok...typo. Got it. Moving on to exercise 2.1, problem #2 on page 15 where we spot our third error. 3.4+13.2+123.25 is not equal to 139.25 as asserted in the answer key. One chapter...(at least) three significant errors. How can a book by a physics teacher, edited by McGraw-Hill be this unbelievably bad? Furthermore, how is anyone supposed to trust you to teach through the quantum theory of light and nuclear physics if you can't add or multiply? Will be returning.
