  • Wonderful book!

    By Song of kids
    I have been looking for a book for my MCAT that I found this book. Honestly it is great!
  • Not good and that is why

    By Jaxean
    - the paper edition got more images - over 80% of the problems (the really challenging ones) are without solutions - the way it presents informations leaves a lot, and i mean a lot to be desired - it does not take advantage of the possibility of digital interactive activity, so why bother with the (made for i book) thing! Don't buy this, trust me, or at least try it first.
  • Great Book for Students

    By AIT1818
    I bought this book thinking it would reinforce my understanding of Physics from class. This book is doing more than “reinforcing my understanding”. I’m learning things that I would have never learned in Physics class in school. Overall, great book. I highly recommend it for any student in Physics that may be struggling with understanding.
  • needs strp by step examples

    By dannyb181
    i am currently taking physics next year and i find this book more comprehensive than actually teaching you the math. i wish this book has examples that taught you the math and syuff like that but overall good for concepts
  • Great step to wonders of universe

    By Sam's Tips
    An all new way of feeding information. These digital books are far better than traditional books. There are inaccurate information in this book, which is unacceptable in factual and theory books. Publisher must correct content.
  • Great..

    I want more lessons please update…!
  • Too many errors

    By riticca 1103
    It was just needed to be revised. I found some facts wrong and it had grammar errors. I personally found myself uninterested in reading this book in the middle of the book.
  • Slightly misleading...

    By Chemosynthetic wombat
    Overall, the textbook is great. There are many real-world connections, which are nice, and lots of information. However, a slight problem arose in the form of the practice quizzes at the end of each section of the book. It was a good idea, but some of the answers are incorrect. It took me a while to figure out, but when it said that 'a person's little finger is about one meter in length', I figured it out. Apple ought to correct this boo-boo, otherwise people might get taught the wrong thing. Other than that, I loved it.m
  • Proper editing is important In physics

    By dmm219
    Text quizzes are riddled with errors. Unacceptable in science education. This book should be pulled immediately until some one who understands,physics can edit the book. Update: the new revision is a much better book. There are still errors, however, this time it took until the first standardized test problem to find one....
  • Good Start to Apple Textbooks

    By macwellwaters
    This textbook is awesome. And as an excelling student in math and science, being able to learn physics at an early age is great. I love the notes factor; I can't comprehend anything unless I take notes. The bad thing about it is that like others, I am seeing incorrect answers for some of the quizzes. I usually know that the answers that they have listed are incorrect, but with new, more difficult concepts appearing, I'm worried that I'll be learning the wrong thing. I have never taken physics before and this is fascinating, but I'm just not sure if I'm learning it right.
