While physics can seem challenging, its true quality is the sheer simplicity of fundamental physical theories--theories and concepts that can enrich your view of the world around you. COLLEGE PHYSICS, Ninth Edition, provides a clear strategy for connecting those theories to a consistent problem-solving approach, carefully reinforcing this methodology throughout the text and connecting it to real-world examples. For students planning to take the MCAT exam, the text includes exclusive test prep and review tools to help you prepare.

About the Author:

Raymond A. Serway is Professor Emeritus at James Madison University. He earned his doctorate at Illinois Institute of Technology. Among his accolades, he received an honorary doctorate degree from his alma mater, Utica College, the 1990 Madison Scholar Award at James Madison University (where he taught for 17 years), the 1977 Distinguished Teaching Award at Clarkson University and the 1985 Alumni Achievement Award from Utica College. As a Guest Scientist at the IBM Research Laboratory in Zurich, Switzerland, Dr. Serway worked with K. Alex Müller, who shared the 1987 Nobel Prize in Physics. He also was a visiting scientist at Argonne National Laboratory, where he collaborated with his mentor and friend, the late Sam Marshall. In addition to this text, Dr. Serway is the co-author of COLLEGE PHYSICS, Eleventh Edition; PRINCIPLES OF PHYSICS, Fifth Edition; ESSENTIALS OF COLLEGE PHYSICS; MODERN PHYSICS, Third Edition; and the high school textbook PHYSICS, published by Holt McDougal. He has published more than 40 research papers in the field of condensed matter physics and has given more than 60 presentations at professional meetings.

Review:

"I find Serway and Faughn reads the best for students and looks (no kidding, it's important) the best. I like the Quick Quizzes. When I taught this course with previous editions, I almost never used any Conceptual questions because of the difficulty for the students to get much feedback. This was mainly because of the large class size, the wide variation of student ability, and the lack of answers for the students. With the answers to these questions in the back, that changes my position on this."

"Overall, I like the book. It is colorful, rich, mature, and reliable. There are a wide variety of resources available to the students."

"I was very happy to find both Newton's Law of Gravitation, and the formula for the period of a simple pendulum, both appearing in this chapter. By and large, I think the presentation in this book of the notions of velocity and acceleration to be quite successful."

"Your book gives great examples. Would offer no changes to that! The organization of SandF reflects the fact that the authors are (of necessity) physicists; what I mean by this is that the order in which mechanics is presented reflects the way a physicist would think My opinion remains the same; it is one of the best textbooks at this level."

"The treatment of friction is excellent."
