my physics is very weak. I need some ultimate physics book which contain sufficient explanatory theory of very good concepts and also contains ultimate problems.
please help me.

Hell yeah!!! Irodov is the best!! I strongly recommend that book.
Better than Walter Lewin is Professor Shankar of Yale university...He teaches slow but he would explain every detail.........I would prefer him over Lewin...though both are amazing.........
How can I get the good books, Vishwajeet?
I guess Book No. 1, 3, 4 are available globally, you may not find book no. 2 in Indonesia. You can buy the other three from Amazon.com or some near by book shop.
thanks for your info. Vishwajeet, maybe do you have a link for a book number 2? I also lack in physics and need more practice to master it. Maybe you can send to my email if you have it: firstname.lastname@example.org. But, if you don't have it, it's okay. :)
No brother, the book is written by an Indian author so it is hard to find a PDF of the book. But if you read and practice the other three you can easily master Freshman Physics.
Okay, I feel unlucky. If only I were Indian, maybe I can read this books. :(
But, maybe you have a good books for freshman physics for free? You can share it via my email. Thanks. Someday, I'll inform you when I've enough skill by reading your shared books. :)
I enjoyed this: The Feynman Lectures on Physics
This might be relevant to you. 'edx.org' has introduced Classical Mechanics course just few days ago. You might find it interesting. Take a look.
Serway and Jewett's Physics for Scientists and Engineers knows all.
I really think the best is Physics for Scientists and Engineers with Modern Physics by Raymond A. Serway and John W. Jewett. It basically talks about every single thing their is in physics. Every major aspect of Mechanics, Waves/Oscillations, Thermodynamics, Electromagnetics, Optics and Modern Physics. They assume you know nothing so they will teach you everything from the basics so ur concepts will be excellent. They supply all the relevant formulas and worked examples. There is also a math appendix in the back which may help you. I really recommend you get it
I also loved Sears and Zemensky.
Berkeley Physics Course Volumes 1 - 5
Not the average physics compendium as the Resnick series, or Serway, or Schaumms. This will teach you college physics, but will not take you by the hand. Nonetheless, they're sufficient to burn through most courses.
trust me, I'm a physicist :p
The Feynman Lectures are awesome and entertaining, but contains NO problems. XD
Giancoli Physics 6th edition. This book seriously well help you understand so many physical concepts.
Irodov and krotov
I think it's easier if you begin with conceptual physics rather than calculus based physics such as the Halliday Resnick. Johnson and Cutnell Physics is good with conceptual physics although I myself haven't studied physics enough to be able to give you advice on material. This site http://www.lightandmatter.com/ also has some good overview on physics as well.
Halliday,resnick,walker or halliday,resnick,krane will be useful ...! also try H.C.Verma
you should take Pradeep publication's books.(divided into 2 parts)
H.C VERMA is the best
and you could use S.Chand for rekindling interest in physics
