Help finding a good self-learning Textbook

  1. Jun 27, 2012 #1
    Hello, next semester I'm taking first year physics. The course covers: Mechanics and waves, dynamics, momentum, energy, travelling waves, superposition and fluid dynamics. The problem is that in grade 12 I didn't gain a good foundation. So, I'm looking for something that I could use to study from and perhaps with accompanying questions. If anyone has any ideas it will be greatly appreciated.

    I'd get a used copy of University Physics, probably an older edition would be cheaper. You will likely have to buy this text at some point as an undergrad.

    I strongly second the "University Physics" recommendation. Also the good old Halliday Resnick will be good for your purposes.
