## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am going to take an intro modern physics course which includes these topics in syllabus:

-intro to relativity & quantum theory

-Schroedinger equation

-particle/wave duality

-statistical physics: Bose and Fermi distribution

My assigned textbook is

https://www.amazon.com/dp/0072448482/?tag=pfamazon01-20

Anyone got experience with the book? Is it worth buying?

Even better, suggestions of another book at this level?

Some backgrounds, I am in my sophomore year,

I must take a linear algebra class and multi calculus before the course itself.

The course also required me to take an ODE course together with it.
