College Physics: Reasoning and Relationships
COLLEGE PHYSICS: REASONING & RELATIONSHIPS is an innovative new text that uses the hallmark theme of reasoning and relationships to help students master the fundamental concepts of the course. By understanding the reasoning behind problem solving, students learn to recognize the concepts involved, think critically about them, and move beyond merely memorizing facts and equations. By recognizing the relationships between physics and their experiences, students will develop a stronger understanding of how the concepts relate to each other. COLLEGE PHYSICS: REASONING & RELATIONSHIPS uses original applications drawn from the life sciences and familiar everyday scenarios to motivate student learning and a consistent problem-solving approach to prepare students for the rigors of the course.

is about the advantage of mechanical
I've never felt so lost in any college course I've ever taken as I have in physics. I could blame it on my own inability to understand the material, but when you take into consideration the lack of examples, and the simplicity of those provided compared to the immense difficulty of the questions that you're expected to answer in the back of the chapters and on the test, I can justifiably place all the blame on the poor instructional quality of the text. In this case is does a remarkably ineffective job of even vaguely directing a student to use the techniques required to solve physics problems. I've never seen so many emails generated for a single class from students begging for help from anyone able to additional instruction!
