Intro Physics Modern physics coverage Halliday/Resnick/Krane 4E extended

  1. Jan 22, 2015 #1
    How much additional material is in the extended version of Volume 2--how many additional chapters on what topics? Is it worth getting an extended edition copy for the additional modern physics material if one already has the non-extended version (and Young and Freedman 11E)?

    I have the extended 3rd edition and the extended portion is pretty wimpy. I agree completely with jtbell: just get a modern physics book instead. My 3rd semester physics included some modern physics and we used an old edition of Tipler that I liked:
    https://www.amazon.com/Modern-Physics-Paul-A-Tipler/dp/0879010886/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top
    It is dated, but can be found for cheap. Other folks probably know what books are better than Tipler.
