Does anyone know of any good books on physics that delves into plenty of details with math but otherwise starts off from scratch. In other words a really good book to start reading physics from if your going to major in that field. I hope I can get some responses from some experianced persons out there. Thanks, I would appreciate it.

Halliday, Resnick and Walker, <i>Fundamentals of Physics</i> (6th editions), is a standard introductory university text.
Or you could give a shot at the Feynman lectures on physics, though they are quite expensive to buy.
"Lectures on Physics" are available as 'paperbacks' (three) and
not quite as expensive.
Take care ;)

hardcore, uncut articles on physics.

xxx.lanl.gov is hardly introductory physics.

Actually, I thought twice about posting that. The reson I did is that I recently d/l'd an article on QFT that is pretty accesable even for laypeople. If someone does a search they can wade through the results and find some usefull stuff. lecture notes and whatnot. Certainly for the most part its not introductory, but I thought it was worth mention.
