I graduated with an undergraduate degree in physics 16 years ago, and I would like to go back and relearn all that great knowledge that I forgot. I was thinking of the following series of books.

-Do you recommend changing the order in which I go through them?

-Do you recommend adding a book in a certain location in order to fill some gap in knowledge before hitting the next step?

-Do you recommend switching one title out for another which is a better book to self-study from?

Thanks!
