I would try Schaum's Outlines for Physicscarn311 said:Can any of you guys recommend a physics prep book for a non calculus based course? When I took the sequence I didnt think to use one but my wife is preparing to take them herself and would like to prep.
The thing is she hasn't had ANY physics in the past; even at the highschool level. So, we're looking for something that can go from really basic concepts upward.opmed said:"Physics Demystified" is a decent review for a non-calc based physics class. It's not the most detailed book, but it helped me re-familiarize myself with concepts in physics.
Sorry, I didn't mean to make it sound like reading the book required any previous knowledge of physics. The book would actually be a good fit for someone who hasn't had physics before, as it goes through most of the basics of physics.carn311 said:The thing is she hasn't had ANY physics in the past; even at the highschool level.

I second this. I actually asked my professor what he recommended and this is what he suggested. I found there were a lot of closely related questions on the exams.BrettBatchelor said:I would try Schaum's Outlines for Physics
