    Has anyone ever used Modern Physics by Serway? Is it any good?

    Halliday, Resnick, and Krane.

    Integral and I are both buddies with Krane. You can't leave him out! :biggrin:

    As far Modern Physic goes, Krane has a very respectable intermediate level Modern Physics text all of his own. Amazon

    YOWSER! what a price tag on the new one! I'll bet a used one reads the same!

    I was given a signed copy of the 1st edition.. somewhere in my moves it escaped. Of all my books how did that one stray??? I don't know what happened to it.

    Oh no!!! Are you sure that its gone? Couldn't it still be in a box somewhere? Thanks a lot. Now I feel bad. :grumpy:

    I have a LQG solution from a person of note, on a napkin! Honest to goodness. She said that there is twenty years of work on that napkin. :rofl: I told her that's a little scary. If she's right I plan to frame it.

    Is Halliday Resnick and Krane the same as Halliday Resnick and Walker, only a different edition?

    I recommend :
    Modern Physics,
    by Ralph Llewellyn, Paul A. Tipler

    Tipler does a really good job at laying out the broad coursework the subject entails. I had Llewellyn as the prof for that class and I have to say he gave a mangificent performance, too bad his students were of low quality.:frown: I guess I have some bias!?!
