Two complete ebooks for one low price! Created and compiled by the publisher, this physics bundle brings together two of the bestselling For Dummies physics titles in one, e-only bundle. With this special bundle, you’ll get the complete text of the following titles: 

Physics I For Dummies, 2nd Edition

For high school and undergraduate students alike, physics classes are recommended or required courses for a wide variety of majors, and continue to be a challenging and often confusing course.  Physics I For Dummies, tracks specifically to an introductory course and, keeping with the traditionally easy-to-follow Dummies style, teaches you the basic principles and formulas in a clear and concise manner as well as the newest discoveries in the field, proving that you don't have to be Einstein to understand physics! 

Physics II For Dummies

Does just thinking about the laws of motion make your head spin? Does studying electricity short your circuits? Whether you're currently enrolled in an undergraduate-level Physics II course or just want a refresher on the fundamentals of advanced physics, Physics II For Dummies walks you through the essentials and gives you easy-to-understand and digestible guidance on this often intimidating course. As you learn about mechanical waves and sound, forces and fields, electric potential and electric energy, and much more, you'll appreciate the For Dummies law: The easier we make it, the faster you'll understand it! 

About the Author

Steven Holzner, PhD, taught physics at Cornell University for more than a decade and is a former contributing editor at PC Magazine. He is the author of Physics I For Dummies, 2nd Edition, Physics II For Dummies, Physics Essentials For Dummies, and Quantum Physics For Dummies
