Main Question or Discussion Point
Hey guys, I am an undergraduate junior physics major currently enrolled in PHY3220 (Classical Mechanics) and we are using the textbook by Fowles and Cassiday titled, "Analytical Mechanics." However, I am looking for a second Classical Mechanics textbook that I could use as a reference since there are certain concepts in Analytical Mechanics that I did not seem to grasp very well. Looking online, I have seen great reviews for "Classical Mechanics" written by John R. Taylor and I was wondering for those of you aware of this particular textbook or have had experience using it, is it any good? Is there any other Classical Mechanics textbook you would recommend? On looking over the information regarding the textbook written by Taylor, it seems that there are well over 700 problems to work out whereas my current Analytical Mechanics textbook by Fowles has approximately 150+ problems which to me makes a huge difference in terms of problem solving experience. Thus, what would you recommend that is a great textbook in explaining the concepts of Classical Mechanics but also gives you many problems to work with? Thanks.
