GRE Physics Test Practice Book
Publisher: Educational Testing Service 2011
Number of pages: 96
The test consists of approximately 100 five-choice questions, some of which are grouped in sets and based on such materials as diagrams, graphs, experimental data, and descriptions of physical situations. The aim of the test is to determine the extent of the examinees' grasp of fundamental principles and their ability to apply these principles in the solution of problems. Most test questions can be answered on the basis of a mastery of the first three years of undergraduate physics.

by Lucien Poincare - D. Appleton and Company
This book, while avoiding purely technical details, tries to make known the general results at which physicists have lately arrived, and indicates the direction and import which should be ascribed to those speculations on the constitution of matter.
by David J. Jackson - arXiv
A physical theory of the world is presented under the unifying principle that all of nature is laid out before us and experienced through the passage of time. The one-dimensional progression in time is opened out into a multi-dimensional flow ...
by Arthur S. Eddington - The Macmillan Company
Lectures that Eddington delivered in 1927. It treats the philosophical outcome of the great changes of scientific thought which had come about. The theory of relativity and the quantum theory led to strange new conceptions of the physical world.
by P. Goldreich, S. Mahajan, S. Phinney - University of Cambridge
This book teaches the art of approximation: dimensional analysis, guessing, and lying. To illustrate these techniques, we study the physics of everyday phenomena. The audience for the book includes graduates and upper-level undergraduates in physics.
