Hey! I'm a junior in high school who's curious and determined to figure and (and retain the knowledge afterwards) how the world works. I'm enrolled in AP physics (i think it was B) but i don't really like how things are explained in our Giancoli book. By no means is it a bad book but I think he focuses too much emphasis on algebraic proofs than explanations (i don't think memorizing formulas is a good way to understanding physics). So what are your recommendations? I'm taking calculus A right now and am proficient in that course. is conceptual physics by Hewitt any good? I only have enough money to buy 1 book right now. Thanks for your input.
