In summary, the recommended books for college physics are Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday, Resnick, and Walker (6th edition) and Physics for Scientists and Engineers with Modern Physics by Knight. Both books offer mathematical support and explanations in plain English, with the latter also covering quantum mechanics.
