Hello all.
I don't have much time.. I'm studying applied maths and I've got a mandatory course of physics. I find it the hardest of all courses. Despite the fact that physics exercises are based heavily on math, I hardly succeed in solving it.

What I seek to develop is, specifically, an ability to solve physics exercises, focused chiefly on equations, in the field of mechanics. After I build the skill in solving mechanics exercises, I'll probably be able to adapt to other fields. If you could recommend me any web-sites or books for a physics beginner, I'd appreciate it.

Well, I am a first year undergrad, but I don't possess the required knowledge that one should. I thought maybe I should begin at late high school level, but I'm not sure. Just throw at me whatever you have.

To start off with, I recommend you grab yourself a Schaum's outline. Plenty of solved problems there. Here's one: Schaum's 3,000 Solved Problems in Physics (Schaum's Outline Series)

Thanks, looks like it's going to be a wonder of a book. I could still use some web sites though, if there are any noteworthy.
