Classical University Physics with Modern Physics by Bauer/Westfall?

  1. May 2, 2016 #1
    Good day,

    I made a purchase of this book by Bauer-Westfall, then realized I was looking for the Young/Freedman version.

    Did I get a good book or is this a paper weight? I am using this for self study from Newton to E&M along with Single Variable calculus.

    Any general opinions? Get another book? Supplement with something?

    Thank you

    If you trust Amazon then the Young/Freedman book is better. There are two versions to check out:




    My suggestion is to read the Amazon reviews to see what others say about both books. Keep in mind the Bauer has very few reviews which could be due to any number of reasons.
