I was wondering if any of you physics guru's have any good recommendations for college physics books. I'm taking my first semester of calc based physics, and the book required for my class is this one http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0471216437/qid=1129070861/sr=8-10/ref=pd_bbs_10/102-4903779-8726509?v=glance&s=books&n=507846 Needless to say, I'm not a big fan of this book. I especially don't like the lack clear derivations for the different physics concepts. I'm a huge book learner, and I'd like to find a good book that clearly and accurately outlines the different physics concepts and the math behind it. I was wondering if there was a better book than this one. Not that my current text book is bad, it just doesn't suit my learning style. Any suggestions?
