Physics! Oct 20, 2007
Seriously, nobody is a good physics teacher. I bought this book to improve my vanity and it has been fruitless. So in turn will you not yield fruit by buying this book.
Not what I was looking for. Mar 27, 2007
Because I was more into chemistry than physics in high school, I decided to brush up on physics and relearn the subject to help my kids in few years time. When the book arrived, I was truly disappointed. The book was almost like Physical Science class textbook which I took in 9th grade, which many of us had found it not difficult - and only requires light mathematical problem solving skills. I was rather looking for "Physics"-physics, not so "BASIC"-physics. I was looking for more mathematical problem solving guide, but, this book covers more of the basic theoretical questions and not enough of "heavy-math" involving problems which I had to deal with in my senior year physics class. And looking at the cover, well, I'll be darned, "BASIC Physics". duh... :P If only my 9th grade teacher had named the science class "Basic Physics", instead of Physical Science.
I find it very helpful Mar 23, 2007
I needed to remind myself some basic physics. It does the work.
For the self disciplined Jan 10, 2007
This book will help anyone who feels they do not comprehend as quickly as others it is a introduction to physics and provides a understanding what physics is. If your not sure what physics is and never took it in school this book will be helpful prior to you taking the course in college or highschool.
Physics Well Explained Nov 28, 2006
Physics is well explained in this book and easily grasped with problems and tests. The only negative is the fact that some formulas are not proven.
