Classical Difficulty of Morin's problem

  1. Oct 13, 2017 #1
    What book do you think is better for a 1st year college Physics student: "Introduction to Classical Mechanics (with problems and solutions)" or "Problems and solutions in Introductory Mechanics" of D. Morin?
    Despite the fact that the titles are very similar the two books are different, but I don't know which to choose.

    Problems and Solutions in Introductory Mechanics is an excellent supplement for someone learning calculus-based physics. Use it alongside a standard textbook. Introduction to Classical Mechanics is an intermediate/advanced mechanics text.

    I don't know about "Problems and solutions in Introductory Mechanics" but "Introduction to Classical Mechanics" is not a introductory book in mechanics, it is a tough book and expects you to know about calculus of variation and lagrangian mechanics.
