I researched some question about book recommendations and I found a lot of books on Google Search, and here in physics.se the book recommendation question was closed because it is a broad question, for example, this question.
My question is specific: What are the books used nowadays in USA for learning physics in college and university? (meaning popular books) I am working as a freelance tutor and knowing the material reference from a specific country could improve my services of tutoring.
I had to learn physics for my university and we use Resnick, Serways, Sears & Zemansky. I don’t know if those books are popular in colleges and universities of USA...
Can I ask this here? And if yes, is it a good idea ask for which books are popular by country? Is this question more related to the Academia or Open Data Stack Exchange sites?
