Our proposed text will address the requirements of physics students who are reviewing undergraduate physics in preparation for the GRE or graduate comprehensive exams. At the same time, it will include additional content and features in order to appeal to a significantly broader audience. It thus will provide the fundamental formulas, concepts and practical application of the core undergraduate physics curriculum while summarizing mathematics that is frequently encountered in engineering and physics calculations. As well, a highly abridged discussion of scientific programming will be presented while very compact (20 or fewer lines of code) computer programs will be incorporated in the text where relevant to illustrate the practical application of physical laws and principles. An ftp site will offer a set of free programming and graphics software tools together with the programs appearing in the book will accompany the text. In summary, the book will concisely present key concepts and equations. It will focus on core issues and omit specialized topics (except for problems that occur with great frequency on examinations) and non-essential details.
