Recommendations for Honors Physics Essentials
"This book is thorough and entertaining. The physics concepts are explained clearly enough for anyone to understand." -- Jeff, Physics Teacher.
"If you are looking for an SAT Physics review book, or a review book for any non-calculus physics test, I'd recommend the Honors Physics Esssentials book. The charts and illustrations helped me organize key information, and I felt like I understood the concepts behind every question on the test." -- Nick, AP Physics C Student.
"I highly recommend this book to anyone who is having a hard time with entry level college physics. Quite frankly, I wish my school would adopt this book as our official text." -- Missy, College Physics Student.
