    I don't know much about Princeton Reviews or Kaplans, living in an isolated country such as New Zealand :smile:.

    I'm assuming the books you are referring to is for first-year undergraduate. Personally I don't have much experience about which physics text book is best, being a high school students myself. I myself has only found a few and all of them, and they are from the University bookshop. I quite liked Fundamentals of Physics series by Halliday Resnick and Walker because it is accessible to high students who has a good foundation and concepts.

    P.S. For some reasons the bookshop claims the 6th edition is not available in America.
