Calculus 1 and Physics 1 books

  1. Jun 11, 2012 #1
    I just started college and at the suggestion of a couple members I went out and bought Serge Lang's "A First Course in Calculus" but I'm finding it a tad difficult to understand. Should I continue to try and understand the material or use an easier textbook to try and get it?

    Also I bought Halliday's "Fundamentals of Physics" for my first Physics textbook but I haven't started on it because I want to try to understand Calculus first before I try to understand Physics. Is this still a good book for beginners Physics?
