I was told by the academic adviser at the University where I will be transferring in the near future that the hardest courses are the two Modern Physics courses, along with E&M, too. What book should I read to get a headstart? She also said that the courses will be a lot faster-paced than at the junior college. There's an old Introduction to Modern Physics book in the storage room of my physics classroom. I thought about asking the professor if I could borrow it. I forgot to see who the authors were and everything.
