You should name the books here so that we don't have to click on every link. But it can't be a bad idea to include the links as well.

Did you even click on the Amazon links for those books? Most of the books you listed do not even cover the subject you wish to supplement. You should have waited until you were done with class to make a proper post.

IMO, you shouldn't always trust reviews on Amazon...often times there are negative reviews from students who expect to be spoonfed :)
If you've already covered a semester of mechanics than I think K&K's mechanics text would be good (I'm learning mechanics 'properly' from it but sometimes refer to a more standard text for clarification). I like the questions in it  really makes you think about the physics.
