Hello, first off, thank you for viewing my thread. My main concern is in how difficult the topic of Optics is going to be. I took Physics B in high school, and Optics was very easy for me there, but I think it’ll be wise to assume the 2nd year Optics course in college will be much more difficult. For now, the required text is Giancoli 4th edition. Provided i do run into some trouble with Optics, do any of you have any good supplement texts. I’ve seen “Introduction to Modern Optics" by Fowler. Do any of you have any thoughts on that book? It is only ten dollars, but those are ten dollars I can spend elsewhere if the books is not good. Thank you very much, and I greatly appreciate any advice/comments.
