Books to help understand Physics?

  1. Books to help understand Physics??

    I'm in college taking a basic level Physics course and I can't seem to fully understand it by reading my book & my professor confuses me even more. Has anyone used any books or cd-roms to help you understand Physics better? If so, would you mind sharing? Thanks,

  3. By the way, I'm thinking of like a book that I can check out from the library that has maybe practice problems to help or something?? I'm getting a D in my class & I have to get a B in it. Anyone read Schaum's Outline of theory & problems of college physics, The complete idiot's guide to physics, or Ace your midterms & Finals: Physics??
     
  4. I have got quite a few books, REA, Schaums, outline series, etc. and none of them cover the material I need them to for my college class, although it is honors so it may be different. They seem to do alot worse than the text book and are more of a reference, although I don't find them of much use overall.

    Get Resnick and Halliday.
     
  6. I'm guessing those are the authors...what are the titles of the books? Thanks
     
  7. "Fundamentals of Physics" by Halliday, Resnick and Walker is quite good,

    "Physics" by Giancoli is also quite good.
     
  8. Physics (Volume 1 & 2) by D Halliday, R Resnick and K Krane. Publisher : John Wiley & Sons. You really have to get this book.
