Main Question or Discussion Point

What's the difference between "Principles of physics" and "Physics for scientists and engineers" ? Both have the same authors and same publisher.

Is it akin to Halliday's "Fundamentals of physics" vs "Physics" ?

From the description for "Principles of Physics" on amazon.com:

PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS is the only text specifically written for institutions that offer a calculus-based physics course for their life science majors.
So it's basically intended for biology majors, pre-meds, etc. Examples and homework exercises are slanted towards applications that are of interest to that audience.
