Website/Book recommendation for self teaching physics? Website I know if MIT's OpenCourse For books, I haven't found one that is easy to digest :( I have been checking out my school's physic books but a lot of them are hard to digest.

    I recommend Halliday & Resnick's Fundamentals of Physics :)

    I'm doing the same, and have found several things to be very useful. First, pay a visit to www.khanacademy.org (free). His physics series is simple an easy to understand. I'd probably not be on this site were it not for him. Next, try the Schaum's outlines on physics. Just be sure to read the reviews on Amazon. The first one I bought was full of errors--tremendously frustrating when teaching oneself. If you haven't already, take a look at the MIT lectures by Walter Lewin on YouTube. The Yale course by Ramamurti Shankar is also very good (and he's hilarious). I can back up the Halliday & Resnick. They're great books. If you don't want to spend a fortune, you can get older versions for around $5-10 each on Ebay.
