For the calculus-based General Physics course primarily taken by engineers and science majors (including physics majors).

This long-awaited and extensive revision maintains Giancoli's reputation for creating carefully crafted, highly accurate and precise physics texts. Physics for Scientists and Engineers combines outstanding pedagogy with a clear and direct narrative and applications that draw the student into the physics. The new edition also features an unrivaled suite of media and on-line resources that enhance the understanding of physics.

This book is written for students. It aims to explain physics in a readable and interesting manner that is accessible and clear, and to teach students by anticipating their needs and difficulties without oversimplifying.

Physics is a description of reality, and thus each topic begins with concrete observations and experiences that students can directly relate to. We then move on to the generalizations and more formal treatment of the topic. Not only does this make the material more interesting and easier to understand, but it is closer to the way physics is actually practiced.



Reviews:
  • Doulkree
This was a great physics textbook. I won't say that it gave me all the answers to making it through college physics, but it did have good explanations in it and the homework problems were good thinking problems. Overall it was a good book to have to help with the course.
  • Androlhala
this book is a great physics book to use in conjunction with a skilled professor. On its own it is very straight forward but as with most math/science books there are symbols that need to be explained and the proofs in the book are accurate. The cd that comes with it are very helpful and i reccomend it to everyone about to take the course, not sure how much just reading the book can teach one though, so make sure that you do have a reliable source of instruction.
  • Dozilkree
Not my favorite subject. Is what it is.
  • Fato
This is a great book. very organized and informative. covers many topics. It does do a lot of calculus derivations, so have a good background in math if you want to understand the book.
  • Alsanadar
Book was received in stated condition. Nice product
  • Jeyn
Quick service and a good price.
  • Antuiserum
Just wanted to comment that this book is great! I learned a lot with this Physics book, which is used commonly throughout many colleges in the country and will prepare you for higher level courses very well. A+++
Very decent book. Answers to all odd numbered practice problems in the back of the book. I think this book is a good choice for teaching college physics.
