Looking for a good Calculus-Based Mechanics book

In summary, the person is looking for a book to introduce them to calculus-based mechanics and e & m, as they have previously taken algebra-based courses. The suggested books are Halliday-Resnick's "Fundamentals of Physics" or "Physics", as well as Kleppner and Kolenkow's "An Introduction to Mechanics" for those with a background in calculus and differential equations. The person expresses gratitude for the recommendations.

Hey guys, I'm looking for a good book to introduce me to calculus based mechanics and e & m. I've taken courses on both of these, but they were algebra based and I'm looking to get a better insight into the calculus based stuff. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

Start with the famous Halliday-Resnick's "Fundamentals of Physics" or "Physics".

The Halliday-Resnick-Krane-Walker book is a good start, if you've taken a first course in calculus and differential equations you can start off with Kleppner and Kolenkow An Introduction to Mechanics.
