Supplementary texts?

  1. Feb 19, 2006 #1
    I've been reading up on my first year text books(General Physics) and found some mixed reviews; we're using The Fundamentals of Physics[Extended], International 6th ed, Halliday/Resnick/Walker + Problem Supplement.

    I was wondering if there are any supplementary texts worth picking up which will give me a better overview of modern physics and EM.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Well, I think Fundamentals of Physics (7th edition extended, atleast) is a pretty good textbook for getting intimate with the little details associated with everything.

    However, if you want to get a hold of the big picture before delving into the details, look into some sort of outline, concise and to-the-point-but-not-fully-descriptive, such as Schaum's Outline of College Physics.

    Depends on what you mean by an overview of modern physics and EM. ;)
