Beginner Physics Books

Quote Quote by mejoc View Post

I am searching for beginner physics books that won't break the bank. I am very interested in astrophysics at the moment. Only problem is, I don't know much calculus.

Thanks for the help in advance.

With best wishes,
A precalculus-based introductory textbook on Astrophysics is going to be hard to find. "The New Physics", edited by Paul Davies, has an excellent chapter by Longair. And, you could probably find a used copy fairly easily and inexpensively. Maybe find it in the local library.
