Looking For Good Physics Books (maybe a calc book too)

  1. Apr 29, 2010 #1
    Hello all!

    I'm new so if this in the wrong forum. I'm sorry. I am a recent college graduate with a degree in biology and certificate in teaching, but have a growing desire to explore the world of physics. I've had a year of algebra based physics in college, but I wish I would have challenged myself to take the more advanced physics courses. I want to "teach" myself physics. I'm looking for a good calculus based general physics textbook and possibly a new calculus book (I sold mine :frown: ). Also, keeping in mind my limited background, are there any good modern physics reads?
