    Amending my past mistakes...in Physics...

    Last summer I took Physics (calc-based) at a local state school and not the state's best one either. I received A's for I and II, but the material was easy and I just pulled all nighters before the exams and not study any other time. So I learned an entire book of Physics in approximately 6 or 7 nights.

    Now...I will have to take PChem starting fall 2006. I need to learn my Physics and I need to learn it well. How do I learn it on my own?

    Any books that I can read and work through in the summer. Something that is not a textbook. I dont want to resort to one unless I have to. Perhaps a very detailed review book that offers a lot of explanation of concepts and a decent amount of probelms. Also it has to be calc based... Thanks

    I liked using the TPR physics review book from the course but however, it's great for basic physics but I don't know how helpful it is for p-chem.

    you don't need that sorta physics for pchem, outside of thermodynamics, which you'll probably learn again for pchem anyway. It's not like you learned the basics of quantum mechanics equations in ur physics classes, right? Besides, physics isn't a pre-req for pchem.
