This is actually a pretty good physics book if you're just starting out. It has a ton of material and it goes fairly in-depth with most of the topics. My professor wasn't very good, and i so i was glad i was able to learn from the book alone. If you're looking for a lot of calculus based problems, this may not be for you, although it doesn't neglect them at all.

Very insightful and contains often very unique exposition. For the extra motivated student out there. Probably the most challenging of all freshman physics books, and certainly not for the faint-hearted. That’s not to say that it’ s an impossible read. Everything is explained very clearly from scratch – the book simply demands.

The University Physics book has the distinction from the College physics series to be complicated by calculus. This isn't the case. Calculus is a prominent topic when one studies kinematics and from then on, calculus isn't really a big deal. This book is the biggest book I have, for the simple fact, that there is an immense amount of material and also because they really take up a lot of space to discuss ideas. The highlight of this book is the modern physics portion, in which quantum mechanics, atomic physics, particle physics, relativity and cosmology is discussed. To me, the weakness of this book is fluid mechanics. However, there is quite enough on fluids if you want to take the MCAT, for example. There are a rich variety of problems that, when solved, allow you to pick up on certain tricks and learn different tools for attacking problems. Therefore, it is advised to pick up the solutions manual if you can. This is the only book I have in which the problem sets are just as valuable as the text.

The book is extremely well done, and this being the 12th edition this should be no surprise. The explanations of the concepts are good enough, but the real strengths of the book lie in the well-done figures, in the generous number of thoroughly explained numerical examples, and in the well thought-out problem sets at the end of each chapter. If you use this book along with the Schaum's Outline of College Physics you should have as easy a time as is possible with the subject matter.

Now for what is not so good, which lies entirely in the cynical marketing strategy. I have compared the 12th edition to the 11th, and I cannot find one additional subject or chapter or even one that has been deleted. The two books seem to have identical subject matter, and that is saying quite a bit for two 1700 plus page textbooks that are supposed to be different editions. So what is different? From the publisher's own information, the difference seems to be in revised exercises, revised drawings, added sketches to worked examples, added goals at the beginning of each chapter, and other such minutia. Hardly the stuff that new editions should be made of considering the price tag. The final ploy, just to insure that the poor students are "locked into" buying a new book is the concept of the student access kit that comes with each book and acts as a personal tutor to the student. But here's the catch - once one student has opened it and used it, it is useless to any other student. So much for reselling your textbook at the end of the semester. Normally I would take off at least two stars for such blatant highway robbery, but the book is so artfully done I just can't find it in myself to do so. The following is the table of contents:

teaches basic and advanced physics well, but does not prepare you well enough for the "Problems" or "Challeng Problems" in the back of each chapter. The section chapters problems are what the book prepares you for, so be prepared to do some extra studying in order to understand how to solve the problem.

This is actually a pretty good physics book if you're just starting out. It has a ton of material and it goes fairly in-depth with most of the topics. My professor wasn't very good, and i so i was glad i was able to learn from the book alone. The practice problems are extremely useful and i really liked how they showed how to work them out in the textbook rather than trying to sell a separate solutions manual like so many publishers do. It's a good book and nice introduction to physics.

Young and Freedman's is much better than Halliday's. While Halliday's are problem oriented approach which teaches concepts through problems solving. Serway's is similar to Young and Freedman and explains concepts well, but it doesn't have as many difficult problems as YF. I read both the 11th and 12th Edition. They have basically the same content. Even the 9th Edition doesn't differ much from this new freshly out of oven book. Problem arrangement is pretty much the same for all the edition with some additional problems and slightly modified arrangement. I bought the older 9th edition for my class this past semester. It went well. Our problem assignments are not from the textbook. Moreover, the library has a reserved copy. I used that for reference to the textbook problems.

I am very happy with this textbook.

The set up and flow of each chapter is pretty much what I would hope for. Explanations range from adequate to excellent. The diagrams and graphics are very good and clear - excellent help for visualizing what is going on. My favorite part: the chapter summaries include distilled, categorized recaps of the mathematical relationships introduced during the chapter. Chapter reviews that are excellent for reviewing the chapter.

The one thing I find myself not loving is how often examples and chapter questions require the reader to flip pages back & forth, referring the reader back to a previous example, sometimes in a previous chapter, in order to obtain the given information and/or picture required for the current example/question. In all fairness, I can understand why the author did it. The book is already mammoth. I just prefer examples & questions to be self-contained, is all. A minor nuisance: not enough for me to downrate the book.

(The solutions manuals are an entirely different story, but-)

This textbook is outstanding.
