University Physics with Modern Physics," Twelfth Editioncontinues an unmatched history of innovation and careful execution that was established by the bestselling Eleventh Edition. Assimilating the best ideas from education research, this new edition provides enhanced problem-solving instruction, pioneering visual and conceptual pedagogy, the first systematically enhanced problems, and the most pedagogically proven and widely used homework and tutorial system available. Using Young & Freedman's research-based ISEE (Identify, Set Up, Execute, Evaluate) problem-solving strategy, students develop the physical intuition and problem-solving skills required to tackle the text's extensive high-quality problem sets, which have been developed and refined over the past five decades. Incorporating proven techniques from educational research that have been shown to improve student learning, the figures have been streamlined in color and detail to focus on the key physics and integrate 'chalkboard-style' guiding commentary. Critically acclaimed 'visual' chapter summaries help students to consolidate their understanding by presenting each concept in words, math, and figures. Renowned for its superior problems, the Twelfth Edition goes further. Unprecedented analysis of national student metadata has allowed every problem to be systematically enhanced for educational effectiveness, and to ensure problem sets of ideal topic coverage, balance of qualitative and quantitative problems, and range of difficulty and duration. This is the standalone version of University Physics with Modern Physics, Twelfth Edition.

Great book to learn basic and intermediate physics
I quite liked this book. It is still on my shelf and I intend to keep it.
It is written in very systematic way.
Have you ever wondered: "Why do we use this formula?", or "Where did he get that from?"
Well, for someone like me, it used to happen all the time, because I like to understand what I learn and I dislike learning by heart, so I asked myself lots of questions. But, when I started reading this book, answers to such questions came up in minutes.
I like the explanations of difficult phenomenon and I like the approach that author takes: he does make some approximations when analyzing some phenomenon, but he doesn't hide them. He states the approximations and explains them.
I used this book when I was preparing for the International Physics Olympiad and I think it is great.
You make your choice.
PS: Some of my friends also use this book, and as far as I know, they are very satisfied with it...
