COLLEGE PHYSICS provides students with a clear and logical presentation of the basic concepts and principles of physics. The authors include a broad range of contemporary applications to motivate students understanding of how physics works in the real world. In addition, new pedagogy, reflecting the findings of physics education research, has been added to help students improve their problem solving skills and conceptual understanding. The innovative technology program is perfectly tailored to support any course design. All end-of-chapter problems, worked examples, and quick quizzes are available in WebAssign (enhanced with hints and feedback), allowing instructors to securely create and administer homework assignments in an interactive online environment. For instructors utilizing classroom response technology, a complete suite of questions, pre-formatted in PowerPointŪ, is available to support the JoinIn" on TurningPointŪ interactive lecture solution, or the "clicker" software of your choosing. For students planning on taking the MCAT exam, a new appendix provides detailed conceptual and quantitative explanations of key examination areas, as well as additional MCAT-styled questions and answers for additional practice. The text's flexible, accessible, and focused presentation, coupled with an extraordinary technology program, gives students and instructors the tools they need to succeed. This text, which covers the standard topics in classical physics and 20th century physics, is divided into six parts. Newtonian mechanics and the physics of fluids (Part I); heat and thermodynamics (Part II); wave motion and sound (Part III); electricity and magnetism (Part IV); properties of light and the field of geometric and wave optics (Part V); and an introduction to special relativity, quantum physics, and atomic and nuclear physics (Part VI). - Publisher.

Review: College Physics [With Physics Now Free Online Access]User Review - James Lyon - Goodreads
I actually thought this was a big improvement compared to Serway's books without Vuille. They finally put oscillatory motion and waves next to each other, and made numerous other improvements, especially in the presentation of electricity and magnetism. Read full review
