Physics Textbook

  1. Aug 3, 2011 #1
    I've been looking around for a AP Physics B textbook (highschool), but haven't found any yet.

    Any suggestions?:tongue2:

    It should include all of the topics in this syllabus (can be in more than one Vol.)


    P.S. Should I get one of these? If so, which one should I get? First one has no Calculus involved, second one does.., but the one with Calculus is not under the official AP textbooks list. Will the second still be as good?

    Physics B doesn't have calculus.

    Exactly what I thought, but somewhere I saw that some do have it(uncommon) though

    The syllabus you linked to clearly states that it is algebra based.
