    What's the difference between Halliday's Physics (2 volumes) and his Fundamentals of Physics??

    Physics is much better than Fundamentals of Physics IMO.

    Does it go more in-depth into the concepts of each topic? How about the difficulty of the problems?

    If I remember correctly, the difficulty of the problems is approximately the same.

    The clarity of the original Physics is greater and it does go more in-depth. Fundamentals is like a watered down version of the original.
