Summary

College Physics conveys the fundamental concepts of algebra-based physics in a readable and concise manner. The authors emphasize the importance of conceptual understanding before solving problems numerically, use everyday life examples to keep students interested, and promote logical thinking to solve multiple step problems.

 

The Seventh Edition of this text presents an especially clear learning path, places a strong emphasis on understanding concepts and problem-solving, and for the first time, includes a book-specific version of MasteringPhysics.
