They give the answers (not solutions) to the odd-numbered problems, which I think is normal for first year texts. Anyway, it's an excellent book, so get it anyway. You shouldn't be bothered getting an old edition that suites your pocket.

I have an old one, from the 70's, and it's one book. I have "Physics" and not "Fundamental...". My doesn't seem to be the same as this one on amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/0201565188/?tag=pfamazon01-20
because mine only has about 800 pages, whereas that one has 1000 plus, and ludicrously expensive!!!! They don't seem to list the book I have.

Ah! Yes they do! Get it quick, it's the last one, and cheap too!
https://www.amazon.com/dp/0201002396/?tag=pfamazon01-20

EDIT: the newer one is basically the same as the older one I have, just one or two more chapters, space motion and some other wave topic, radiation I think, and some extra notes. I wouldn't be bothered getting the old one I linked above, the omitted chapters are not important.

Hey thanks a lot for the heads up on amazon!! Got me the last one.

BTW Its looks to me that the three separate volumes of "Fundamental...." have been combined into one large textbook called "Physics".
