Hey everyone!
So i have finished my first year at the university and i would like to share my experience for those who about to proceed their first year or want to improve their knowledge!

Starting with Mathematics:
I recommend these books
* First Course in mathematical analysis Canuto-Springer
(It covers everything from the beginning to the end of the first part needed to proceed to Mathematical analysis II and Complex analysis I.)

Linear algebra, any generic book will be fine!

Physics: I used Taylor's book Classical mechanics, it's really interesting and explaining the material in extraordinary way!

For Laboratory, I used Error analysis book of Taylor J. as well.

And that about it.

Now if you guys have no idea where to start, or don't have any background in mathematics i really recommend you to start with Schaum's Outline of Mathematics for Physics Students.

If you have any questions about the first year, or how to proceed you can freely sending me a message :)

have a terrific day :3

Welcome to PF!

If you liked Schaums then you should get their book on Mathematical Tables and Formulas. It has a large list of solved integrals, and great info on other applied math topics including coordinate systems and Bessel, legendre and Laguerre functions useful n Quantum Mechanics.
