    Help me find the ideal physics book for self-study!

    Please consider Physics by Halliday Resnick Krane as well. It's much pithier than the rest, meaning to say, it teaches you much more with lesser text, imo. University Physics is good, but sometimes tends to talk a lot of crap.

    References or aids in learning QM?

    Could anyone recommend me a book

    You might be fine with any normal undergraduate textbook like University Physics by Young&Freedman, Physics by Halliday Resnick and Krane, Physics for Scientists and Engineers by Serway yadayada. If you want something more advanced, Purcell isn't bad.

    Electricity and magnetism HELP

    Halliday Resnick, and Halliday Resnick Krane are good. I don't really like Halliday Resnick Walker.

    Trying to self study Linear Algebra

    What I mean is that I would not want to learn it the way Hoffman and Kunze approaches it. The exercises include proofs, etc and only look at the pure math side of it. Something like Shores would show the graphical meaning of it all and includes examples with applications. I don't think I'm...

    Trying to self study Linear Algebra

    Thanks for the replies you guys. I think I am not really interested in learning Linear Algebra in such a way. I am more interested in it's applications. Now, what do you recommend?

    Replacement for Campbell's Biology

    I think I have the same problem with Campbell. However, when I really get myself to read it, it is interesting, but time consuming. Once it gets time consuming it turns you off. I have seen people use the book and like it. It has been...
