Integrated Physics and Calculus vol 1 and 2

In summary, the conversation is about a person trying to find a good calculus-based book to improve their understanding of cal/physics for mechanics and E&M. They were recommended a book by the link provided but are still searching for other recommendations. The person ended up buying both volumes but was disappointed as they were expecting a book that incorporated more calculus. They will continue their search for a more detailed book for their undergraduate studies.

I am trying to decide if this book will help me improve my cal/physics for mechanics AND E&M. If you guys have a better calculus based book for an undergrad please let me know. I will keep searching through these forums but so far i haven't found something like the above link.

Thank you.

I bought both volumes. They are about as good as my crappy Physics for Scientists and Engineers 3ed (FISHBANE, GASIOROWICZ, THORNTON).

The plus side is that it does have a few more equations derrived but nothing major.

I was expecting a book that uses a lot more calculus for physics. I will need something more detailed for my undergrad studies...

I can say that Integrated Physics and Calculus vol 1 and 2 is a highly recommended book for anyone looking to improve their understanding of calculus and its application in physics. It covers both mechanics and electromagnetism, making it a comprehensive resource for undergraduate students. I have personally used this book in my studies and found it to be very helpful in developing a strong foundation in both subjects. However, it is always good to explore different options and find a book that best suits your learning style. I suggest looking for reviews and recommendations from other students or professors to find the best calculus-based book for your specific needs. Keep searching and don't hesitate to ask for recommendations from your peers and professors. Good luck in your studies!
