Basic Physics: A Self-Teaching Guide by Kuhn for Conceptual level


Recommended Posts

The guides have been discussed repeatedly on these boards.

My opinion which I quote below

 

I only looked at the physics one, because that is my area of expertise, and I do not think one can master physics using this book.
Aside from it being dry, the explanations are too sparse - there is simply not enough room devoted to a thorough discussion of concepts, including clearing up of common misconceptions. There are way too few practice problems.

Supplementing with living books is nice, but will not teach problem solving.

 

has been given and further discussed in this thread (esp post #12)
