Physics for Scientists and Engineers with Modern Physics – Serway & Jewett – 6th Edition


This best-selling, calculus-based text is recognized for its carefully crafted, logical presentation of the basic concepts and principles of physics. FOR AND ENGINEERS, Sixth Edition, maintains the Serway traditions of concise for the students, carefully thought-out problem sets and worked examples, and evolving educational pedagogy.

This edition introduces a new co-author, Dr. John Jewett, at Cal Poly – Pomona, known best for his teaching awards and his role in the recently published PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS, Third Edition, also written with Ray Serway. Providing students with the they need to succeed in introductory physics, the Sixth Edition of this authoritative text features unparalleled media and a newly supplemental package for instructors and students!

The material within the book is pretty good. They teach the information and have plenty of examples that can usually help you through the problem sets.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
