Popular Books for PhysicsGRE.com Visitors

Post by Grant » Thu Jul 08, 2004 7:20 pm

The following is a list of the most popular books that visitors to PhysicsGRE.com bought through links to Amazon.com. The red asterisk (*) by a book indicates that I did NOT even link to that book from the main PhysicsGRE.com site.
  1. The Best Test Preparation for the Gre Physics (isbn=0878918485)
  2. * A Review of Undergraduate Physics (isbn=0471816841)
  3. [isbn=0878919414]Physics Builder for Admission & Standardized Tests[/isbn]
  4. [isbn=0375763872]Cracking the AP Physics B & C Exam[/isbn]
  5. [isbn=0743241274]AP Physics B: An Apex Learning Guide[/isbn]
  6. * Princeton Problems in Physics with Solutions (isbn=0691024499)
  7. * 3,000 Solved Problems in Physics (isbn=0070257345)
  8. The Cambridge Handbook of Physics Formulas (isbn=0521575079)
  9. Gre: Practicing to Take the Physics Test - This book is no longer in print, but with the help of a search engine you can probably find these practice tests in pdf format online.
  10. Columbia Review High-Yield Physics (isbn=0683180703)
  11. * [isbn=0070248303]Schaum's Outline of Modern Physics[/isbn]
  12. * University of Chicago Graduate Problems in Physics, With Solutions (isbn=0226121097)
  13. How to Prepare for the AP Physics B (isbn=0764123599)
  14. Physics Calculus (isbn=0534392156)
  15. * [isbn=030645291X]A Guide to Physics Problems: Thermodynamics, Statistical Physics, and Quantum Mechanics[/isbn]
  16. * Modern Physics from a to Z (isbn=0471572705)
  17. [isbn=0070540187]Schaum's Outline of Quantum Mechanics[/isbn]
  18. * Fundamental Formulas of Physics, Vol. 1 (isbn=0486605957)
  19. How to Prepare for the AP Physics C (isbn=0764118021)
Note: It is interesting that so many visitors bought A Review of Undergraduate Physics (isbn=0471816841) even though I did not link to it from the main site. I decided to start a discussion/review of the book.

Note: The AP physics books are probably not as popular with students preparing for the Physics GRE as this list might indicate. The data is skewed because many people (i.e. high school students) arrive at this site from various “AP physics” searches and then follow the links to Amazon to buy the books.

Note: You can follow the next link to learn how to link to books in this forum.
