Good book for basic physics prep...

Hi all,

This book may seem a bit "young" for mcat prep.. but I'm actually finding it pretty interesting for basic concepts. I read the entire "text" in a day, and found that I actually learned a bunch of basic concepts pretty well (that I should have known already :rolleyes: ).

This is the text for the basic physics class for arts student (for those without physics, or math, or calc) at my uni.

Anyway, I thought it might help some of you since I got a little bit out of it.

Conceptual Physics 9th Ed. By Paul Hewitt ISBN 0321052021. If you search for it on Amazon there's a couple of reviews.
