Im going into second year and I’m trying to find textbooks to study for some physics courses out of since I have the time.

Heck, even some multivariable calculus textbooks might help. We use James Stewart’s Early Transcendentals 8th Edition and it didn’t really help- that and uh I pulled a stupid this summer term and took 2 math courses (2nd year linear algebra and multivariable calculus) and an engineering course at once - for 6 weeks, failed the calculus course. My gpa is suffering, I ended first year off with around a 3.5 and now I’m a bit above a 2.0.

Not trying to repeat that, hopefully another book might help, or some extra practice. Also don’t want that happening to any of my physics courses next year.

The physics courses I have are classic mechanics, electricity and magnetism, special relativity, optics and spectra and some experimental course.

The math is just that multivariable course I failed and differential equations (for scientists and engineers).

What would you suggest? Thanksnin advance!
