Summary

In response to popular demand, University Science Books is delighted to announce the one and only authorized Student Solutions Manual for John R. Taylor’s internationally best-selling textbook, Classical Mechanics.  This splendid little manual, by the textbook’s own author, restates the odd-numbered problems from the book and the provides crystal-clear, detailed solutions.  Of course, the author strongly recommends that students avoid sneaking a peek at these solutions until after attempting to solve the problems on their own!  But for those who put in the effort, this manual will be an invaluable study aid to help students who take a wrong turn, who can’t go any further on their own, or who simply wish to check their work.  Now available in print and ebook formats.
