Walker, Edited by Pearson/Prentice Hall. Please note that the book is available as either: (1) a hardcover version (covering topics of both this course--Phys 1210--and its sequel--Phys 1220); or (2) a soft cover version splitting the contents of Phys 1210 and 1220 into different books. Both versions are OK, but you may find option 2 easier to carry with you. There is also an electronic version of the book available as an "ebook". The book's website is http://www.prenhall.com/walker (where some extra on-line resources are included with new textbook, available for additional $$ if you got a used one). For an additional cost the publisher also provides on-line resources at http://www.webassign.com/textbooks/walker3/details.html .
