A. Physics for scientists and engineers by Jewett/Serway.

B. Physics for Scientists and Engineers: A strategic approach with modern physics by Randall D. Knight.

1. I read the former for a while and actually liked it. But in comparison to other texts, is it worth the hefty price? I have to undergo intensive Math training during university and still doing it, so I really appreciate a Calculus-based textbooks with detailed Mathematical expressions if possible. That's when my question arises, does the second book (the one by Knight) Calculus-based, too? If yes, are the two books of the same quality in terms of academic contents?

2. I saw people complaining about the book by Jewett/Serway is a dreaded text with messy (overflowing? Sorry, have limited English) contents in it. How true is that compared to other similar textbooks? And is it true at all?

3. What are other good recommendations?

4. What are some good titles about quantum optics and radiophysics?

NOTE: I don't know much academc words about Math, so when I say 'Calculus-based' I mean the following, say: Integrals, line and surface Integrals, Differential equations, series (like Fourier series), functions, kinds of derivatives, etc. I am not a native speaker so I don't think I fully understand some academic Math vocabularies, but I hope my previous effort in explaining my view will aid you!

Thanks in advance!
