Student Workbook for Physics for Scientists and Engineers: A. .About the Author This book does a good job at explaining physics. I think I gained more from this text book then I ever did from lectures

Student Workbook for Physics for Scientists and Engineers: A Strategic Approach with Modern Physics. Randy Knight has taught introductory physics for 25 years at Ohio State University and California Polytechnic University, where he is currently Professor of Physics and Director of the Minor in Environmental Studies. This book does a good job at explaining physics. I think I gained more from this text book then I ever did from lectures. I would recommend it to anyone in the physics series.

ISBN 978-0-321-74090-8 1. Physics-Textbooks. For every chapter in the book, MasteringPhysics provides pre-built assignments that cover the material with a tested mix of tutorials and end-of-chapter problems of graded difficulty. Teachers may use these assignments as-is or take them as a starting point for modification.

Randy Knight has taught introductory physics for nearly 30 years at Ohio State University and California Polytechnic University, where he is currently Professor of Physics and Director of the Minor in Environmental Studies. Randy received a P. in physics from the University of California, Berkeley, and was a post-doctoral fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics before joining the faculty at Ohio State University

Books a la Carte also offer a great value-this format costs significantly less than a new textbook.

As the most widely adopted new physics text in more than 50 years, Knight’s Physics for Scientists and Engineers was published to widespread critical acclaim from professors and students. In the Third Edition, Knight builds on the research-proven instructional techniques he introduced in the first and second editions, as well as national data of student performance, to take student learning even further.Knight’s unparalleled insight into student learning difficulties, and his impeccably skillful crafting of text and figures at every level — from macro to micro — to address these difficulties, results in a uniquely effective and accessible book, leading you to a deeper and better-connected understanding of the concepts and more proficient problem-solving skills.

For the Third Edition, Knight continues to apply the best results from educational research, and to refine and tailor them for this course. New pedagogical features (Chapter Previews, Challenge Examples, and Data-based Examples), end-of-chapter problem sets enhanced through analysis of national student metadata, fine-tuned and streamlined content, and an even more robust MasteringPhysics® program take the hallmarks of the previous editions— exceptionally effective conceptual explanation and problem-solving instruction— to a new level.

This has honestly been one of the best physics texts I have ever worked with. The chapters are very well thought out and designed, and the author has clearly made a point of justifying the equations and variables he uses in examples. I believe the greatest strength of this text, however, are the end of chapter problems. A lot of texts use problems that are exceptionally difficult for those new to the subject, relying on knowledge from later chapters. Knight has developed a sequence of problems that both mirror the examples provided, but add in minor difficulties over time to really help grasp the material. Highly recommended for adoption and as a reference text.
College Physics by Knight does a fantastic job of putting complicated physics concepts to elegant explanation and diagrams. The organization and consistency of throughout the book made learning predictable and thus easy to follow. The practice questions at the end of each chapter are of a wide range of difficulties, providing practice for all phases of learning.

Some of the practice questions assumed values that were mentioned in the associated chapter (ex. specific index of refraction for glass) but not in the problem itself, which made finding the solution more difficult. It would be helpful if all of the values required for solving the problem were given in the question, as on an exam.

Overall, this textbook has been greatly beneficial in my understanding of physics. I've had the unfortunate luck of getting some pretty terrible physics lecturers, I owe my success in physics to Knight!
I hated bad lectures and physics. After studying with this book, I realized that I still hate bad lectures, and that physics is actually quite interesting and not too formidable a topic. I had these realizations after my lecturer was horrible and I ended up basically teaching myself by reading this book.

It explains everything clearly, and you can just chuck this heavy book down to the stage and knock out the lecturer so you can get some quality learning done. Just kidding, don't hurt people. But I think this is probably the first textbook I actually liked.
This book is great. I got it with the Workbook and access code for a great price. I took an introductory physics class with less math which was nice for the concepts, but I think this book is written even better. There are various notes throughout the book that are very helpful. It has really helped me to understand a few concepts that didn't stick with me as well in multi-variable calculus. The whole book is very well written and easy to understand. I will definitely be keeping this book even after I finish the class.
The content of the workbook is OK as there are a few linguistic mistakes here and there. The content is not very extensive but there is plenty of it. It's a required book for my class and it works, but the book could have had more "context-rich" problems of incorporating concepts into one problem rather than incorporating a single concept in a problem and then moving on. I have to say that it is quite scummy to charge extra for the answers to these problems as it digs a deeper hole into pockets of college students of which are already deep.
This book really helped me with my class and it was in amazing shape! Brand New condition and I paid 150 less than it was going on chegg and I normally get all my books from chegg!
While this book was required for a course I took, I still think I would purchase/rent a different text for the same class if I had to do it over. It explained things well enough, but I've read better physics text books. I was constantly referring to my older texts and also Physics Work Books (supplementary to course work) in order to fully understand a given concept. Science writing doesn't have to be difficult to digest, and this book was on the verge of being vague and not offering enough detail to answer all of my questions.
I bought this book for my phys I class and although my teacher sucked balls this book was extremely helpful and unlike most text books it explains the topics fairly well giving relevant examples. plus the price was great for a new edition of the book. I recommend it.
