"Head First Physics" - view book via Safari trial or Google
O'Reilly Books have recently released Head First Physics, which is an algebra-based introduction to the mechanics and experimental topics in the AP Physics B and A Level Physics courses.
The book works from the ground up, using problem-based learning, and is suitable both for students who are struggling and students who want to increase their understanding of physics.
You can view the entire book using the Safari online service. Without registering, you can browse the top of every page.
If you click on the 'try safari now' link on the site and register for a free trial, you'll be able to see the whole book (but remember to cancel the trial once you're done, or a subscription starts!).
PS. I should probably say up front that I'm the author. I hope I haven't done anything wrong by providing a link to these resources.
