midorifamily Posted September 7, 2012 Share Posted September 7, 2012 Has anybody used this combo? I'm using the college version of Hewitt's Conceptual Physics with our 10th-grader and 7th-grader. I like this arrangement very much. I can teach them at the same time, they retain much more when they bounce off their ideas between them, and I can just add a math component for the 10th-grader to beef it up. We've dabbled into Hewitt's "Problem Solving in Conceptual Physics" for math, but I'm wondering if it would be solid enough as a prep for SAT Physics Subject Test. When I briefly compared it with Barron's prep book, it looked like it covers most, if not all, of everything Barron's does. Was my estimate too far off? I'd like to hear from moms who used both Conceptual Physics and the Problem Solving book, specifically if they think the latter is enough for SAT Subject test, and about how they coordinated the textbook reading and problem crunching. Could anybody help me? Thanks! Midori Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
