Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When it comes to understanding physics, even good students can be confused. Physics for the Utterly Confused is perfect for students first or second semester non-calculus based physics courses, and is equally useful to anyone taking their first physics course. Problems are thoroughly explained, show all the math steps and explain all the concepts. This book will help you understand how to do your homework problems and get ready for your exams.

Don't wait another minute­­get the answers now and go from utterly confused to totally prepared in no time!

Synopsis:

An accessible approach to the complex subject of physics. Its logical, friendly, step-by-step guide to non-calculus college-level physics courses is suitable for non-physics, non-engineering students. Over 200 problems - likely to appear in tests - are included, with solutions and explanations.
