Yup, it's classic, and it has really good problems. Be aware, however, that while the book with both volumes in one cover is (I think) Halliday and Resnick, the book was originally published in two volumes, the first of which is by Resnick and Halliday. They explain this in the preface, but it may lead to confusion while looking for the books. The title is "Physics."
