Are there any good first-year physics books with LOTS of examples?

  1. Oct 28, 2009 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for a good first-year undergraduate physics book that focuses on the fundamentals. I am looking for a book with LOTS of worked out examples, or even better, just a reference book filled with examples. My class moves very quickly and the prof barely has time for one example of everything, so that's the main reason I'm looking for such a book.

    A book with a couple of challenging problems would be good too.

    Thanks in advance.
