This book will save you time as you master the basics taught in first-year, calculus-based college physics courses. You'll firmly grasp the all-important building blocks needed for every physical science and all branches of engineering. The many problems included with guided solutions make this potentially daunting subject much easier. Additional problems with answers give you a chance to reinforce what you've learned and gauge your progress as you go. This next-best thing to a private tutor makes especially clear the topics most students find most difficult. It's ideal for independent study, brushup before an exam, or preparation for the MED-CAT and GRE.
