Online Textbooks

Like many geeks I collect knowledge so that I will be able to do things if the need comes up, whatever things they are. Here’s a good list of refererences books supplied by nTensify who wrote:

There are a lot of free textbooks out there, some of them are better than others, but a lot are quickly becoming very good.

Plain and simple, everyone should have access to education, money shouldn’t dictate how educated someone can become.

Some other free books:
http://www.physicsforfree.com/ (three physics books from beginning physics to general relativity).
http://www.lightandmatter.com/area1.html (six physics books, variety of topics)
http://www.motionmountain.net/ (notably one of the best free physics books ever "published").
http://www.math.wisc.edu/~keisler/calc.html (intro to calc book under Creative Commons)
http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/ (a really cool free circuit design book I ran across a few years ago when I was leaving college).
http://www.gutenberg.org/ (obligatory gutenburg link, aggrigator of books out of copyright or otherwise set free).

(there are plenty more, but to spare you the boredom of a huge list here… go to google and search for digital library books, you’ll have a few million hits to look through ;) )
