Hi,

I'm going on a trip in August for a whole month and I would like to take this time to review some of what I have learned during my physics major.

Do you have a book to recommend?

Something like: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0486652270/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20 or https://www.amazon.com/dp/0486609723/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20

I love the topics covered in the second book but they're both a little outdated, I think.

Thanks.

There's always Arfken and Weber or Boas

and for a different take on things there's Penrose's Road to Reality although it may be more focused on areas you haven't covered.

Next if its classical mechanics or quantum mechanics then perhaps Susskind's Theoretical Minimum books.

Lastly, there's an ebook on Mathematical Physics by Prof Nearing for the budget conscious:
