Hi, I recently got some money and I wanted to pick up some textbooks that are worth the ridiculous prices that they go for. So I was thinking of getting; Mechanics - Landau (Debated Goldstein but the reviews for Landau won me over and I find that even though Goldstein is more dense, it isn't any more illuminating) E&M - Griffiths (Honestly have no experience with the author but he gets praise all the time on various physics forums etc.) QM - Griffiths ( Same Reason) Optics - Hecht (This one I'm least sure of, it was personally recommended to me, but I saw that the author has a 'schaums outline' book on the same subject that some people were recommending over the textbook?) Thermal Physics - Schroeder (There was a few I was looking at, Finn was another, not sure about this one that much either). With regards the courses themselves I have done/am/will be doing courses this year that cover a large part of these books. Also I'm not sure about the Optics/E&M overlap so advice on that as well as the books themselves would be great.
