Hello I am having a really bad semester with solid state physics material, the book "introduction to solid state physics" by kittel is hard to follow and vague also it doesn't provide good explanations, always brief and fast. More than that my prof. is really good but have problems in explaining things. We use kittel from ch.1 to ch.7. Is there any good replacements to kittel that have the same content "not distributed along the book, so that I can really.replace it"? Thanks.
