I have read the other reviews and find them interesting especially since they are mixed which, admittedly , surprised me. I will use this text for a course 'Introduction to Physics'. I rate the book very highly. I find it straight forward and , actually, enjoyable to read. The pictures of physics phenomenon to me are illuminating. Also, the text asks many interesting and practical questions about Applied Physics which I find helpful to understand physics nuances and applications. In fact, I like this text better then Halliday and Resnick. I'm not quite sure what other's expectations are for an Introductory Text but for me the book presents Physics basics clearly, succinctly and in an interesting way. What more could one ask for?
I find the book to be a little dated and visually unappealing, but so far in my college course, I am doing well with it. The instructor is very comfortable with delivery of its contents and is skilled in getting the students to learn the concepts. I like the fact that the odd problem answers offer formulas along with the correct answers.
This is my second Modern Technical Physics book. What it lacks in visual beauty it makes up for great content. This is a great resource for people learning introductory physics.
Awesome no problems and I couldn't beat .99 as a price
I am currently using this book for a college physics course and I am very dissapointed in it. There equations given are difficult to understand becuase few or no example problems are given to show how to use the equation. Also, the answers in the back of the book seldom correlate well with the information given in the chapter. Finally, no solutions manual is provided with the book. Since the chapters themselves are lacking you'd think they would at least provide a solutions manual to help explain, but no. These and many other reasons make this book a poor choice. Shop around and find another one.
It has been about 13 years since I used this book for a college textbook in my engineering technology studies. I ran into it the other day and do think it is one of the best textbooks for the subject level I have seen. It is not flashy or colorful, and does not give answers for every problem in the book, but the information can be found in the text easily. One book I will always keep around for reference.
I thought for sure that the price difference from the used ones to the new ones meant an older edition but it wasn't. this book really was produced in 1991 so there is no worry about getting an older copy. great buy and saved well over $100.
