Purpose of this work is to determine the physics teacher candidates' views on Physics 11 textbook' content and general properties suitable to the 2013 Secondary School Physics Curriculum. 24 teacher candidates at 2015-2016 school year constituted the sampling of the study in which scanning model based on qualitative research technique was used by performing document analysis. Data collection tool of the research was the tiles prepared with 51 and 28 open ended questions including the subject content and general properties of the textbook. It was concluded that the textbook was sufficient in terms of discussion, investigation, daily life context, visual elements, permanent learning traces; but was insufficient for design elements and being only one project in Electricity and Magnetism unit. Affective area activities may be involved in the textbook, there may be teacher guide book and book' teaching packet, and underline issues and qualification of the textbook may be improved.
