I used Serway & Jewett and would not recommend it. The book wasn't terrible, but I'm sure there are other calc-based physics textbooks that are better.

I used Serway and Jewett as well. IMO, it's not a good "teaching" book. In-text chapters have barely any examples related to chapter questions. The chapter questions are awesome though.

Yeah the chapter questions weren't bad, but the student solutions manual had very few solutions, which was frustrating.

intro calc based physics?
as in pre-calc/algebra or do you mean calc (I) based physics?
mine is calc based physics and we use the newest version (2nd ed?) of physics for scientists and engineers by knight. i really like it.. lol but maybe thats cuz i used the same book (but first edition) for physics in high school. i find it really clear and their example problems and in-chapter concept questions are VERY helpful.
