Intro Physics Does this physics textbook include these topics?

  1. Jul 8, 2016 #1
    Hey guys. I was wondering if this physics book linked below includes these following topics:
    mechanics, kinetic theory and thermodynamics, electricity and magnetism, waves and optics, and modern physics


    You can view the table of contents by previewing, or here are the titles of the chapter if it helps:


    I'm completely new to physics so I can't really tell for myself. I just want to make sure this textbook covers everything that I'll be learning next year. Thanks!

    Chapters 1-11
    Chapters 13-15
    Chapters 16-22
    Chapters 11-12, 22-25
    Chapters 26-33

    By the way, it's rare for any course to cover all the topics in a textbook, even at the college/university level.
