All- I am currently an undergrad about to embark on Physics I (Calculus Based). I took AP Physics in High School, but the teacher was awful and I never felt like I actually understood anything that I was "learning". The professor that I will have this upcoming fall is undoubtedly intelligent, however, it is commonly known to the students that she is completely unable to convey basic concepts, thus making the class difficult to understand. Thus, I wanted some opinions on what the BEST Physics Textbook/Help book is. I'm looking for something that explains the basic concepts clearly and in an organized fashion, yet still goes to a higher level of complexity (so that I can actually pass my exams). Here is the only description of the course and the topics to be covered that I could find: The basic principles of mechanics, fluid mechanics, thermal physics, wave motion, and sound. Primarily for students in the life sciences. Thanks for all the help!
