Anybody have any recommendations for physics workbooks?

In summary, the speaker is looking for physics workbooks and online resources that cover high school level difficulty and include lots of exercises. They mention the Schaum's Outline series and the "F=ma" contest's questions as potential resources. They also suggest looking at the Sir Isaac Newton Prize Exam and the CAP High School Prize Exam for more challenging questions once the speaker feels confident.

I am studying physics off of Khan Academy by myself and I find they are a bit light on the exercises I'd love some physics workbooks that cover up to high school graduate difficulty. That you very much. Online resources etc appreciated too, just problems thank you.

Workbooks in the Schaum’s Outline series have both summaries and lots of problems with answers.

Not a workbook, but you can have a look at the "F=ma" contest's questions (solutions included).
