    "Feynman's Lectures on Physics - Volumes I, II, III"

    What can I say? Just truly brilliant books - highly recommend for anybody studying physics at university (degree) level, as I am currently.

    Also, "University Physics by Young and Freedman" is an excellent (and very hefty!) book for undergraduate physics.
