Recommendation for an undergraduate textbook

  1. Jan 23, 2009 #1

    I'm not sure if I am posting in the right place, but I am looking for a textbook for 1st & 2nd Year undergraduate physics.

    For the mathematical areas, I have a book called "Mathematical Methods for Physics and Engineering" by Riley, Hobson & Bence, which is excellent, and has lots of worked examples to help you apply the concepts taught in the book. I am trying to find a similar style book for the physical side of the course (Optics, Electromagnetism, Circuit Theory, Special Relativity, that kind of thing).

    The most important thing for me is that this book has examples i can do on my own, with solutions, as I am self-teaching this course.

    Any recommendations would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance...
