BookLoverz, April 13, 2008 (view all comments by BookLoverz)
Physics: a challenging, frightening, often daunting hurtle that students all across the world must tackle at one time or another. Sometimes textbooks just aren't enough. Sometimes the explanations are incomplete. Sometimes you think "How did they get THAT answer?" Sometimes you're just lost.

For years, the only solution has been to study for hours on end (and often, end up just as confused as when you started), or pay for expensive tutoring. NOT NOW! There is a simple, and very effective, solution: College Physics 10TH Edition Schaum's Outline. There are quick, concise, easy to understand overviews as well as a plethora of completely "worked through" problems. Any good physics professor could tell you that practicing problems is truly the only way to get a good grasp on physics. What help is that if you don't understand the thought process behind solving the problems?

But that's just what College Physics 10TH Edition does . . . it is like an inside view of a physics genius's mind and how it works to solve even the most complex problems.

This has to be the most valuable Physics resource I own! Thank you!
