So I'm a first year undergrad and I really don't like the book I'm currently using at uni; Matter and Interactions by Chabay. I have been searching PF a lot and found out that the best book is Halliday/Resnick/Walker or Krane but I'm not sure which one to get?

There are the books in my university;s library but they are of older editions (edition 2 and 3 and there are the extended edition of them as well).

I also got my hands on Berkeley Physics Course Vol. 1 (Mechanics) and I'm currently going through it. Is it good for modern classical mechanics?

I quickly went through some pages of Halliday(Fundamentals of Physics) but I'm not sure if it deals a lot with vectors in all the chapters(since we deal a lot with vectors in my course, be in in kinematics, forces, gravitation)

Now I could go and buy a recent version of Halliday's book but I'm not sure which one? The one with Krane or Walker? Which edition is considered best?

Thanks
