   Great book
I purchased this book because it was needed for my physics class, but it's definitely a good book for those who want to understand physics. There are also practice questions for each chapter with answers provided to make sure you did it correctly. I would recommend it to anyone.
   A Decent Introduction To Physics
I have been looking for a book on basic physics for quite some time. However, I was able to find some books that were unsuitable for reading because of the author's disability. They often came in more than one volume, which was expensive. Another problem is the lack of self-tests. It also required that you use the Internet to access the program. The book was designed for people who are learning on their own. It has frequent questions, and self-tests after each section. Now you know whether you've fully grasped what you're being taught. The more feedback you get, the more likely you are to get things right. This way, when I have missed something, I become aware of it right away so I can go back and review it, he said. This course would recommend to those who want to learn some of the basic concepts of physics.
   Basic math, nothing more...
It's just that the IRS doesn't do much else. Tries to incorporate a physical element, but fails. Anyone can complete the survey, which is free.
   Good basic physics that is easy to follow.
I enjoyed this self-teaching text, Mary. It's just that he doesn't know all the physics.
   A solid intro physics book for young mind
The seventh-grade girl started to ask me some of the many questions she encountered in science Olympiad. However, I quickly realized that these were basic physics problems. However, she needs some systematic intro to physics before she can google "physics" and make sense of it. The book serves the purpose of introducing readers to the world of physics. Not too hard, not too well organized and with exercise, he said.
