Looking for a good Calculus-Based Mechanics book

  1. Dec 24, 2009 #1
    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.
