Physics for Scientists and Engineers with Modern Physics – Raymond A. Serway – 9th Edition

Description

As a market leader, FOR SCIENTISTS AND is one of the most powerful brands in the physics market. While preserving concise language, state-of-the-art pedagogy, and top-notch worked examples, the Ninth Edition highlights the Analysis approach to problem-solving, including brand-new Analysis Model Tutorials, written by text co-author John Jewett, and available in Enhanced WebAssign.

The Analysis approach lays out a standard set of situations that appear in most problems, and serves as a bridge to help identify the correct fundamental principle–and then the equation–to utilize in solving that problem. The unified art program and the carefully thought out problem sets also enhance the thoughtful instruction for which Raymond A. Serway and John W. Jewett, Jr. earned their reputations. The Ninth Edition of PHYSICS FOR SCIENTISTS AND WITH MODERN PHYSICS continues to be accompanied by Enhanced WebAssign in the most integrated text- offering available today.

My favorite part about this textbook is that it has unit-guides which are like a table-of-contents flowchart, which helped me use the textbook and understand the scope of the material I wanted very quickly.
