Re: PER textbook suggestions

I used a preliminary edition of this textbook. It's not yet very
different at all from Physics by Halliday, Resnick, & Walker except for
some rearrangement of topics in the first few chapters. I was even
"warned" not to expect too much out of this early edition.

I'm sure that it will improve, but I used it for one year and found it
too much like HRW. I now happily use Matter & Interactions by Chabay
and Sherwood.

You might consider
"Understanding Physics" by Karen Cummings, Priscilla W. Laws, Edward F.
Redish ,Patrick J. Cooney. It's published by Wiley. It is actually a
revamped edition of Halliday, Resnick & Walker with some
re-arrangement of
topics plus PER-like exercises added to the traditional ones. I
haven't used
it so I cannot speak from experience, but given the history of HR and
PER credentials of the authors this could be what you are looking for.
