Good physics book

  1. Mar 19, 2009 #1
    Hi everyone,

    I am a college freshman and am going to take an introductory physics class (calculus-based) next semester. I am horrible at physics and would like to study up the stuff during the summer. Is there any book that would be good at teaching me the stuff? Not a textbook, but a self-help book, like a concise "All you need to know about calculus-based physics" or something like a "physics for dummies" that sort of thing, shorter than a textbook.

    Thanks so much guys!

    Many college bookstores have such books in the study aids section. You can also find them in stores such as Borders if you are in the US.
