Can Someone learn all mathematics required for undergraduate physics from only one textbook (mathematical methods in physics texts ) prior to knowing anything in physics especially if he want to self study ? What are the advantages and disadvantages of this method? If I have superficial knowledge in calculus , Can I only read it in a mathematical methods textbook ( I have Riley , Hobson and Bence book which include a chapter on elementary calculus )? Or should I read a calculus book at the level of Stewart book for example ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
