    This is way too broad a request to expect a reasonable response.

    If you have some specific questions or problems that are giving your trouble, then you'll get some useful help. (We have an excellent Intro Physics homework help section.)

    You need to struggle through the book, like it or not. (Or find another comparable one, more to your liking.) Attempt to solve as many problems as you can.

    Browse through our Introductory Physics Learning Materials section; you may find some useful tutorials. An excellent site to browse is hyperphysics: http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/emcon.html
