This book was recommended for my mechanics course for my third year at Uni. I found it very helpful and clear, since no previous knowledge is required

Not all that simple for US undergrads 11 Nov. 2004
By Black-Dove - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Really, I could give this book four stars on some points, like its introducing Lagrangian mechanics at an introductory level. And it isn't a bad book at all -- just that it is NOT for first year undergrads at US universities as it is for Europeans who tend to be ahead of us at this level. It uses vector calculus almost from the start, for example, and its problem sets are difficult compared to most problems in Serway and other standard first-year physics texts. However, as a supplement (if you want to spend $37 for a small book), it will likely give you more of an edge in the long run if you can figure it out.
