Quick question: I haven't had physics since 9th grade of high school year, and I got a C in that class. Now, I'm taking Physics with Calculus for my major, and it will also meet my pre-reqs for med school. However, having done bad once, I would like to know what books I can read to get a basic understanding of physics so I won't be behind people who know and remember the subject. Any recommendations?

I haven't used Schaum's for physics, but if it really is good for college calc-based physics, then I probably wouldn't use it for the MCAT. As far as depth of material goes, calc-based physics >> MCAT physics. (not that either one is much more than scratching the surface :rolleyes: )
