Text Books

Main
• David Halliday, Robert Resnick "Principles of physics" 9th ed., extended QC 21.R41 2011
• David Halliday, Robert Resnick, Jearl Walker "Fundamentals of physics" 7th ed. QC 21.2.H35 2005
• Robert Resnick, David Halliday, Kenneth S. Krane "Physics" 5th ed. QC 21.3.R47 2002
• מבינים פיזיקה: חשמל, מגנטיות ואופטיקה QC 23.2.U5512 2011
Other Books
• האוניברסיטה הפתוחה, אדוארד מ. פרסל ;חשמל ומגנטיות - Translation of the relevant book from the Berkeley series, over the course level (hebrew)
• The Feynman lectures on physics Vol. 2 - Thorough reference book of one of the greatest physicists who knew also how to explain an unusual manner. Not easy at all but a worth the effort. It is not a usual book! (English)

Remarks

• All the courses in this category have the same syllabus, i.e. the lecture material is the same.
• Enhanced Course means that the the class/home set of problems contains more difficult questions.
• Reinforced course is a regular course with an extra hour. The extra hour is used *not* to cover additional material, but to have the possibility to go slower, add more explanations, examples etc.
