Classical What Textbooks are best for self-study for SAT Physics Test

  1. Sep 6, 2017 #1
    I am planning on taking SAT Subject test in Physics in few months, but I don't know which textbook is best to study all physics concepts that will be tested.

    I have a basic knowledge of algebra and almost none of calculus, as they didn't teach them back in high school, but I really want to understand all physics concepts and get good score in SAT Physics.

    Therefore, I would really appreciate it if you can recommend me what to do, and which text books should I get if I am going to study them by myself.

    I also have this book (Physics: Principles with Applications (7th Edition) by Douglas C. Giancoli) .What is your opinion about it?

    Thank you for replying.
    I forgot to mention that I only know like 10-15% of topics, so I want to study Physics from beginning not just reviewing it.
