Need High School Calculus Based Physics Text

  1. Nov 14, 2008 #1
    My department is seeking some leads for a good high school physics text that can be used for our AP Physics students. We are looking for something therefore that would be Calculus based. Do any of you have any good leads on this topic?

    Thank you!

    Halliday, Resnick, Walker: Fundamentals of Physics is always good.

    +1 to Halliday, Resnick and Walker.

    Im not familiar with the level of AP Physics (Im from Australia), but when i was in highschool i hated the prescribed textbook so i used Halliday instead and found it to be very good.
