Student Resources: Students please register at www.wileymaestro.com for free downloads of Previous Years' ICSE & CBSE Test Papers, Engineering, AIPMT, AIEEE Test Papers, Log Tables, Formulas and Much More.

This first volume of an adaptation of the Resnick, Halliday and Walkers Fundamental of Physics ( 8th edition) for IIT-JEE and offers a solid understanding of fundamental concepts and helps reader apply this conceptual understanding to quantitative problem solving. This volume also covers topics on Units and Dimensions, Mechanics and Thermal Physics.

The text has been rearranged as per the IIT-JEE syllabus and many small topics have been included in the original chapters to make the coverage more complete. These include Net Motion, Constrained Motion, Projection on the Inclined Plane, etc. A new chapter on Circular Motion has been created by collation of material on Kinematics of Circular Motion from the chapters on Two- and Three-Dimensional Motion and Dynamics of Circular Motion.

A number of additional problems and solved examples have been included to cover all requirements of IIT-JEE examination. The book offers a unique problem-solving technique: 4Cs (Conceptualize, Classify, Compute and Categorize), which guides students towards stepwise problem-solving.

The revised edition contains new end of chapter material containing all question types as per IIT-JEE pattern: Reasoning and Assertion type, Multiple-choice and Problems.

About The Authors
David Halliday
is associated with the University of Pittsburgh as Professor Emeritus. As department chair in 1960, he and Robert Resnick collaborated on Physics for Students of Science and Engineering and then on Fundamentals of Physics. Fundamentals is currently in its eighth edition and has since been handed over from Halliday and Resnick to Jearl Walker. Dr. Halliday is retired and resides in Seattle.

Robert Resnick is professor emeritus at Rensselaer and the former Edward P.

Hamilton Distinguished Professor of Science Education, 1974-93. Together with his co-author David Halliday, he revolutionized physics education with their now famous textbook on general physics, still one of the most highly regarded texts in the field today.

Jearl Walker, professor of physics at Cleveland State University, received his BS in physics from MIT in 1967 and his PhD in physics from University of Maryland in 1973. His book The Flying Circus of Physics was published 30 years ago, has been translated into at least 10 languages, and is still being sold worldwide. For 16 years he toured his Flying Circus talk throughout the U.S. and Canada, introducing such physics stunts as the bed-of-nails demonstration and the walking-on-hot-coals demonstration to countless physics teachers, who then proceeded to hurt themselves when they repeated the stunts in their own classrooms. These talks led to his PBS television show Kinetic Karnival which ran nationally for years and which earned an Emmy.

Amit Gupta is the Head of Physics Department at BANSAL CLASSES, KOTA which is the most prestigious coaching academy for IIT-JEE aspirants. An IITian himself, he has been teaching Physics for the past 10 years to the students preparing for the JEE.

A good mutation of the classic text but expected more from AG..

First of all, the main difference from the original text is that a separate exercise for objective problems and an additional subjective problems exercise has been added. But being acquainted with Amit Gupta through bansal classes i expected problems of more higher difficulty. Some of the problems in the additional exercise are directly from H C verma ,so the other ones must be from other international authors.

Pros:
1) Theory is sufficient for JEE

2) Printing is of very good quality

3) Answers are given to both odd and even numbered problems unlike the original text.

4) Problems are so...

3) Answers are given to both odd and even numbered problems unlike the original text.

4) Problems are solved through the four C's approach which is a good approach for the new analytical type of JEE problems.

Cons:
1)Would have appreciated a few dozen more problems.
No other Cons.

Best Physics Reference for XI students

It's got all necessary points and many derivations and many many questions MCQs as well as others. It is a must have for students preparing for IIT-JEE. It's got lots of sample questions more as well. It is worth to read from cover to cover

Perfect book for physics lovers :)

This is a really good book in my opinion, simply because of the way concepts are explained. It's simple, concise, and if you read it properly, you feel someone is actually explaining stuff to you real-time.
It is finally a Resnick Halliday :) and adapted for IIT JEE! Provides for the a pretty much perfect read :)

Its really good book,please dont consider bad reviews.

I just love this book,because it has a good explanation with real figures and pictures.Its colourful pages makes it more attractive.In every physics lover should have it.Its my personal experience that I got each concept full understood.thanks to respective writets.

good for theory but bad for questions.

it is simple and very easy to read , better than any other book in understanding the concepts and theory.it is colourful too.i would suggest be careful while buying this book.it has a lot and i mean a lot of errors and they r not in errata too .MCQ and questions are not very good (very repititive).but the worse point about the book is there are no explainations to questions at the end of the chapter which can be a great problem.well if u want to make ur concepts strong buy this and for questions buy dc pandey by arihant.
BUY WITH CAUTION.

Excellent for IITJEE preparations.

Everything given in the book is easy to understand, provided one has a little of patience. There are plenty of high quality solved and unsolved questions, that are ideal for building conceptual understanding.
However, this book contains it's share of errors, and if you haven't recieved a separate...
