# MathTutorDVD.com’s Physics DVD

To get the best price on Jason Gibson’s award winning Math Tutor DVD series, visit the Math Tutor DVD website.

Here’s another post in my series reviewing Math Tutor DVD. Finally, I’m turning to the sciences. As I’ve mentioned before, before Math Tutor DVD creator Jason Gibson was churning out this popular series, he was an engineer. As a result, he’s had quite a bit of experience in science classes like physics and chemistry. This post focuses on the Physics DVD.

I also started off as an engineering student for my first year and a half of college, and Jason has set the Physics DVD tutoring program up just like most universities have them set up. He has courses on motion and Newton’s laws, electricity and magnetism, thermodynamics, and oscillations and waves. The DVD’s align extremely well with college courses. Unfortunately, high school physics classes tend to dabble a little bit in each of these areas, meaning you may need to get the whole series for a high school class even though you only need a little bit from some of the disks. The simple alternative is to subscribe to the Math Tutor DVD website, where you get access to all of the lessons, Physics and otherwise, for a low monthly price. Sample videos of the course and a course outline of the Physics tutoring DVD’s follow:
