I'm putting together a list to hopefully help those who are seeking a textbook to use.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Please feel free to offer suggestions/corrections/etc. I'm starting with math and physics

for now but will branch out into other subjects after having a solid foundation. At some

point in the future, I hope to have reviews or descriptions about each book, but that

could take a while.
