    It looks like a comic book. It might be useful for "crib notes" but doesn't strike me as help in really understanding physics. I would much prefer a good text book -- Halliday and Resnick or Feynman leap to mind.

    im using these internet websites cause im preparing in advance for my physics course which starts next month. So i dont have a proper textbook per se at the moment, and the local bookstores are not that helpful. So im constantly looking at the syllabus i downloaded from the net, and just go through internet sites for my study, e.g. wikipedia, that website mentioned, and just some other google hits i find.

    i dont know if im studying properly, but it is helping me, but i got to admit that website i mentioned is pretty brief, so for further details i go to other internet links.

    Am trying to get Feynman lectures on physics, but its not that easy

    By any chance, do you know where to download the 3 volumes on Feynman lectures on physics online?

    heisenberg, my advice to you is to just relax and enjoy your summer.

    I understand that you're desperate to learn physics and want to get ahead (I'm doing the exact same thing with some maths, or rather I'm trying, but seem to lack the discipline at home!) but to try and get a taste of an entire course is quite alot, and could end up with you resenting the subject once you get further into the course.

    If you want to give yourself a challenge, I suggest you try to learn (and master) special relativity before your course begins.

    It isn't going to benefit your knowledge for your course really, but it will sharpen your mind, as it is a very counter intuitive topic. Most of the maths is quite straight forward, but even most of the more difficult parts you would be able to just accept at face value and progress. I get the impression your young? If you could learn and understand special relativity, that would be VERY impressive.
