Hi everyone, I just bought Physics for Scientists and Engineers 8th ed by serway and jewett, is it a good textbook for calculus based physics since i'm a student of physics at university ?
Which is the best calculus based physics textbook ?
I'm a student who wants to master even the proofs and understand the meaning of each integral etc... please give me some advice!

Thank You

An Introduction to Mechanics - Kleppner and Kolenkow is a brilliant intro book and supplementing it with Morin's Mechanics book will take you places =D. I haven't heard of the one you mentioned but if it's intro physics for engineers I would place my bets that it is not rigorous and just contains rote calculations.

Kleppner is a fantastic text.

I did not discover it until after I finished upper division mechanics and it was still a great text.

Physics For Scientist and Engineers by Serway-Jewet is an Intro book of Physics at level of University Physics by Sears and Zemanasky having very low amount of Exercise questions, One of the same titled book is by Ginacoli having low theory more exercises.
Anyway if you want to go beyond that book then Kleppnar Mechanics + Griffiths Electrodynamics and Krane Modern Phyusics is a great combination.

ok the OP needs to understand that Kleppner is a more advanced book than Serway, Serway is what I use and it is for a non-honors intro physics sequence and it gets the job done.
