3/e Knight vs 13/e Young

  1. Jun 18, 2012 #1
    [Sorry for posting this here, apparently posting this here and notifying the mentors is the expected way to do this as I can't post directly in the Learning Materials area]

    Curious if anyone has reviewed the latest Knight book "Physics for Scientists and Engineers: A Strategic Approach with Modern Physics" 3rd edition and compared it to the latest other 'standard' books like "University Physics" 13th edition (Young)?

    I really like the updated Knight book from the sample chapter but haven't seen the whole book enough to compare it to University Physics (or Fundamentals of Physics for that matter).

    Adding a bit....I know there are a ton of book questions.

    The Knight and Young versions are new for this year. The Young book is probably a lot like that last version 12/e but the Knight book seems to be quite updated compared to the last version.

    If anyone has seen/used either of the new books, your thoughts on them would be appreciated.
