Open Education Resources (OER) question

  1. Mar 18, 2017 #1

    I want to find the best free textbook for my algebra-based intro physics courses. Currently I am using Physics-Principles with Applications by Giancoli and I am a bit reluctant to move to open source since I have gotten used to the instructor resources that comes with my current text book!! But, there is a push to adopt open source in my school since the textbook prices have sky rocketed in recent days. I found OpenStax College Physics pretty appealing. Has anyone used this book? Does this come with PowerPoint slides and a testbank with solutions. Basically, I would like to know your overall opinion about using this text in class. I teach at a community college.
    Thanks for all your input!
