Classical Mechanics:

An Introduction to Mechanics by Kleppner and Kolenkow

Electromagnetism:

Introduction to Electrodynamics by Griffiths

Quantum Mechanics:

Quantum Mechanics by Zettili

Thermodynamics:

Thermal Physics by Kittel

Now my question is, does kleppner suffice as a mechanics text for the whole undergraduate curriculum (regardless of lagrangian and hamiltonian)? Because I think kleppner is good but I don't know where to study lagrangian and hamiltonian, given that kleppner already covered all Newtonian mechanics. I tried to read books by Gregory, Fowles, Finch, Taylor,etc in Classical Mechanics but I still think that Kleppner is far superior in the Newtonian part, but the problem is that it doesn't involve lagrangian and hamiltonian. Any advice?
