[size=150]A Comprehensive List of Physics Olympiad Resources[/size]

[b]Introductory Physics Books[/b] [list] [*] [b][url=]Conceptual Physics[/url][/b] by Paul G. Hewitt (Algebra-based). A comprehensive book on algebra-based physics. Good for people who haven't had exposure to calculus yet. [*][b][url=]Physics for Scientists and Engineers[/url][/b] by Randall D. Knight (Calculus-based). [*] [b][url =]Fundamentals of Physics[/url][/b] by Halliday Resnick Walker (Calculus-based). Easier version of Halliday Resnick Krane (HRK, see below). [*] [b][url=]Physics[/url][/b] by Halliday Resnick Krane (Calculus-based) Harder version of HRW with about 1/3 more harder material added to each chapter. Previous editions were edited by former USAPhO coach. This book covers almost all the material required for physics olympiads and is recommended by many coaches and teachers alike. [/list]

[b]Subject Specific Books[/b] [list] [*] [b][url=]Introduction to Electrodynamics[/url][/b] by David J. Griffiths. [*] [b][url=]Electricity and Magnetism[/url][/b] by Purcell and Morin. [*] [b][url =]An Introduction to Classical Mechanics[/url][/b] by David Morin. [*] [b][url=]An Introduction to Mechanics[/url][/b] by Kleppner and Kolenkow. [*] [b][url=]Optics[/url][/b] by Eugene Hecht. [*] [b][url=]Concepts in Thermal Physics[/url][/b] by Stephen J. Blundell, Katherine M. Blundell. [*] [b][url=]Modern Physics[/url][/b] by Kenneth S. Krane. [*] [b][url=]Thermodynamics[/url][/b] by Enrico Fermi. [*] [b][url=]Vibrations and Waves[/url][/b] by A.P French. [*] [b][url=]Thermal Physics[/url][/b] by Daniel Schroeder. [*] [b][url=] Concepts of Modern physics[/url][/b] by Beiser. [*] [b][url= ]Fluid mechanics[/url][/b] by Frank White. [*] [b][url=]Introduction Quantum Mechanics[/url][/b] by David Griffiths. This book contains a brilliant discussion of quantum mechanics in a very approachable and keen way.
