so, list some good textbooks for undergraduate math and science.

of course early transcendentals by james steward will probably be on everyone's list for math, but let's try to get some new names.

i would say physics for scientists and engineers by serway and beichner is extremely well written for calculus based physics.

for chemistry, i would say chemistry by silberberg is topnotch in general chem.

O yea, list authors, since books tend to have the same names.

Do you mean Larson & Hostetler?

Some people feel that the Larson & Hostetler book is inferior to some other common ones.
