    So I'm looking at the following.

    University Physics with Modern Physics, by Young, Freedman & Ford
    Fundamentals of Physics, by Halliday, Resnick & Walker

    Anyone here have experience with one or both or these texts and/or perhaps with a recommended alternative.

    Thanks in advance.

    The second book has been a standard for decades. It is a fine text.

    If you can handle The Feynman Lectures on Physics, it is the best ever.
