YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A ROCKET SCIENTIST TO UNDERSTAND PHYSICS

Now anyone with an interest in the physical sciences can master physics -- without formal training or drowning in a sea of complicated formulas and equations. In ''Physics Demystified best-selling author Stan Gibilisco offers a fun, effective, and totally painless way to learn the fundamentals and general concepts of physics.

With ''Physics Demystified you master the subject one simple step at a time - at your own speed. Unlike most books on physics, general principles are presented first - and the details follow. In order to make the learning process as clear and simple as possible, heavy-duty math, formulas, and equations are kept to a minimum. This unique self-teaching guide offers questions at the end of each chapter and section to pinpoint weaknesses, and a 100-question final exam to reinforce the entire book.

Simple enough for a beginner but challenging enough for an advanced student, ''Physics Demystified is your direct route to learning or brushing up on physics.

HERE'S EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO:

* Understand the math used in physical science

* Solve mass/force/acceleration problems

* Create mathematical models of physical phenomena

* Perform distance vs. time calculations

* Determine potential and kinetic energy

* Calculate the wavelength of sounds and radio signals

* Understand visible light interference patterns

* Calculate the energy and frequency of a moving particle

* Understand atomic structure

* Learn about electric current, voltage, resistance, power, and energy
