For students that prefer to study the course in English, I suggest to use three classical textbooks:

- F.W. Sears, M.W.Zemansky and H.D. Young, University Physics, Addison-Wesley (1987)
- M. Alonso, E.J. Finn, Fundamental University Physics, Vol. 1 , Addison-Wesley
- K.R. Symon,
*Mechanics*, Addison-Wesley

For problems and exercises:

1. Rees, Physics by Example, Cambridge
