Honors Physics Essentials is an easy-to-read guide to algebra-based introductory physics, featuring more than 500 worked out problems with full solutions and covering topics such as: kinematics, dynamics, momentum, impulse, gravity, uniform circular motion, rotational kinematics, work, energy, power, electrostatics, circuits, magnetism, microelectronics, waves, sound, optics, thermal physics, fluids, and modern physics.
This book is designed to assist beginning physics students in their high school and introductory college physics courses as an invaluable supplemental resource in class as well as a review guide for standardized physics assessments such as the SAT Subject Test in Physics, PRAXIS Physics, and CST Physics.
Honors Physics Essentials is integrated with the APlusPhysics.com website, which includes online question and answer forums, videos, animations, and supplemental problems to help you master Honors Physics Essentials.
Nice, easy to read explanations, good examples
Very good explanations. Easy to understand. Has examples with answers. Graphics are cute (sorry, but they are!). Could be used as a self-study text, reference, or to augment a course. I'm not a Physics-major so I appreciate the readability of the text and examples. I got to see the sample text for free and only got to read the first few chapters, but I like this enough to purchase the entire book.
This book provides a perfectly concise explanation of high school physics, with an emphasis on New York State Regents Exam preparation. This is an amazing resource for students and teachers alike!
