    Hi all,

    Could you please suggest the text books that are good to give basics required for Physical Sciences and also other subjects. I am not looking for Practice questions, I want books that cover all the topics in detail.

      I have found that for retention purposes, a solutions manual (instructors, not students) does wonders. Of course it can bite into your study time, but in the long-run, you are better prepared (which in one sense equates to less review time, so you get some of your study time back). Incidentally, upper-division classes have a similar effect.
