I had two semesters of algebra-based general physics. Right now, I'm taking a "conversion" class which pretty much goes over everything I did in those past two classes but it also adds calculus methods. There is no textbook for the course so I'm relying solely on the instructor's notes and recommended practice problems he gives us. It sure would be nice to have a good textbook to refer to while going through this course. Any recommendations for a nice calculus general physics book which explains how to solve a variety of problems that can get challenging while also offering good practice problems that come with well written solutions?

Over 1600 pages of greatness. If the price is too steep, you can purchase the same text in volumes. I think there are three, so you'll spread out the spending over time. The newest edition will be released in January.

I agree that Young and Freedman is a good book, but since it's not required, it would be ridiculous to spend $200 on a new one. Shop Ebay or the used book sites, and get an old edition for about ten bucks. Freshman physics hasn't changed for the last 80 years or so.
