College Physics – Serway, Faughn, Vuille – 9th Edition

Description

While physics can seem challenging, its true is the sheer simplicity of fundamental theories–theories and concepts that can enrich your view of the world around you.

, Ninth Edition, provides a clear strategy for connecting those theories to a consistent problem-solving , carefully reinforcing this methodology throughout the text and connecting it to real-world examples. For planning to take the MCAT exam, the text includes exclusive test prep and review tools to help you prepare.
