I'm taking my first college physics course this semester and I couldn't be more exited. Only one thing wories me. The course and book claims to not require calculus. I'm worried that I will be missing out on many key concepts, because my plan is to transfer from the small liberal arts school that I am to the University of Puerto Rico (the best school choice in Puerto Rico for CE). Will I be missing a lot of important details needed for a carreer in science? The text is "contemporary college physics" by Jones and childers ISBN 007-561828-1 Is there anything I should pay more attention or any additional studies I should persue during the semester? How hard was your first college physics experience? any insight or links would be greatly appreciated.
