This book covers so many areas of Physics that it can be used in any physics course. Also, it can be used as a self-study book. The main reason for that are its very good explanations and lots of examples followed by high quality pictures.
This book consists of six main areas: Mechanics, Waves/Acoustics, Thermodynamics, Electromagnetism, Optics, and Modern Physics. The overall number of Chapters is 44 which proves the statement of the most complete physics textbook ever published.
This textbook is also mandatory for most physics courses which only adds more to its high popularity.
The text and concepts are followed by diagrams and excellent illustrations. It is written as if it was a guidebook and that is maybe the best feature of this book, and something that students like the most about it.
