this is a good book. I am actually reviewing ecampus's prices. I rented the textbook for SO MUCH CHEAPER than buying it. and then when I was done with the class I just sent it back. No hassle. pretty happy with the book and ecampus!

Physics, 8th Edition: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


Designed for medical professionals who may struggle with making the leap to conceptual understanding and applying physics, the eighth edition continues to build transferable problem-solving skills. It includes a set of features such as Analyzing-Multiple-Concept Problems, Check Your Understanding, Concepts & Calculations, and Concepts at a Glance. This helps the reader to first identify the physics concepts, then associate the appropriate mathematical equations, and finally to work out an algebraic solution. They ll also be able to work high quality problem sets and gain immediate feedback through WileyPLUS, the online problem-solving management system. New Focus on Concept questions are featured in WileyPLUS, offering medical professionals a set of thought provoking conceptual questions as well as calculation problems.
