    Hi there,

    I live in BC Canada, and am enrolled in a physics 12 class here.
    The curriculum here is garbagee :
    http://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/irp_resources/docs/phy12gc.pdf
    in comparison the the US SAT curriuculum, which discludes many important parts of physics (BC curriculum). I'm currently studying for the Physics SAT in Jan, and I really need to get prepared for it. I'm looking for the best TEXTBOOK for preparing, going into good detail of subjects, detailed problems and solutions etc. I really like physics, and I want to understand the concepts, not memorize them, but really understand them. I need a book for this. Please help! I have Barron's SAT prep, but since I havent seen basically any of the concepts before, the short summaries aren't very helpful. I need to start getting A+s and not B+s to get into the school I want, I am willing to put in the effort.

    Thanks
