Classical Supplemental text for calculus-based mechanics?

  1. Apr 13, 2015 #1
    I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good supplemental text for a college-freshman level mechanics course (calc 1 being the pre-req). I am pretty solid on the math, and I feel like that ends up hurting me sometimes because I think of things more in terms of the mathematics and sometimes I tend to ignore important concepts that would help me solve the problems. Obviously, Feynman is great and I have all his books but sometimes he tends to skip over things that he finds to be elementary (and since he was a genius and all, that means he ends up skipping some stuff that a lot of us regular people don't necessarily find so easy). If it helps, my class uses University Physics with Modern Physics (13th edition) by Young and Freedman. So I'm looking less for something that explains the math and more something that gets in depth with the concepts. Thanks everyone!
