Hi guys,

I'm in the second year of my undergraduate degree at Melbourne University.

The subjects I have done this year are:

- Real Analysis
- Vector Calculus
- Group Theory & Linear Algebra
- Quantum Mechanics & Special Relativity
- Thermal & Classical Physics
- Electromagnetism & Optics

Next year I plan to do:

- Quantum Physics (core)
- Electrodynamics (core)
- Statistical Physics (core)
- Computational Physics
- Laboratory subject (maybe)
- Complex Analysis (Core)
- Partial Differential Equations
- Metric & Hilbert Spaces or Geometry

I want to know if this sounds like the right plan for next year as I hope to pursue Masters after next year (our uni got rid of Honours) and then hopefully a PhD.

In electrodynamics I know we look at tensors and want to know where I can find the resources to get an introduction to them before the start of semester next year.
