I am currently using the "Introduction to Solid State Physics" by Kittel for an independent study in the course and my preparation for final tomorrow. I find this book to be an absolutely incomprehensible garbage. There is very little organization, let alone any kind of logical flow. It is more of a reference to people who already have a perfect understanding than a textbook. Could someone point to any book that is actually descent and is possible to learn from? I have tried Ashcroft and it wasnt the answer either for similar reasons. "Fundamentals of Solid State Physics" by Christman is actually quite alright, but a terribly chosen notation and overabundance of errors and misprints make it a poor choice as well. P.S. I posted a similar query a couple years ago asking for an alternative to Griffiths QM. One of the posters here recommended Zettili's book. The latter turned out to be amazing. Is there anything similar on Solid State Physics? Help, please.
