Has anyone ever used Modern Physics by Serway? Is it any good?
Use either Halliday+Resnick or Feynman.U can can hardly find anything better...
Halliday, Resnick, and Krane.
Integral and I are both buddies with Krane. You can't leave him out!
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.
I have Modern Physics by Gasiorowicz, Fishbane and Bernstein..quite a good book.
Is Halliday Resnick and Krane the same as Halliday Resnick and Walker, only a different edition?
I double that doubt too..
and how do you rate modern physcis by Arthur Beiser.
I recommend :
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. I guess I have some bias!?!
