PHYSICS by Giancoli
by Gery on June 20, 2007I think this is one of the best general physics text ever written. It requires a good knowledge of algebra and some trigonometry to understand the explanations and solve the problems. This 1000 page physics text covers all the topic usually found in the first course of physics such as motion, force, work, wave motion, heat, sound, light, electricity, atomic structure, and nuclear particles. These topics are presented in 14 chapters with detailed explanations and examples.
At the end of each chapter, there are about 20 review questions and 60 problems which help a you to understand the chapter. If you can't answer the questions then you have to reread that section of the chapter. The problems start out easy and become more difficult as you get to problem 60. The first few problems can be solved in about 5 minutes each but the latter ones may take 15 to 20 minutes each. If a student can do two-thirds of the problems, they have a good understanding of the chapter. The answers to the odd numbered problems are in the back of the text.
A person can read and understand the text without a teacher but a teacher's help makes it easier. Most students can cover about two-thirds of the text in a year.
