Physics 2nd edition is an alternate version of the College Physics 3rd edition text by Giambattista/Richardson/Richardson. The key difference is that Physics covers kinematics and forces in the more traditional organization of beginning with Kinematics and proceeding to forces. ( College Physics takes an integrated approach to forces and kinematics, introducing forces and interweaving kinematics.)
