Can someone point me to some good online resources about Modern Physics?

    Here's the description of a class I'm taking next semester:

    Electrons, protons, and structure of matter: a historic view. The Rutherford-Bohr atom and elements of quantum mechanics and their applications to atomic, nuclear, and solid state physics. Usually offered every spring. Prerequisite: PHYS-200, PHYS-205, or PHYS-210, or permission of instructor.

    Try Hyperphysics, in particular the Quantum Physics, Nuclear Physics and Condensed Matter sections.

    Your course sounds a lot like these modern physics lectures on iTunesU

    (covering introductory relativity, QM, and nuclear physics).

    You may be able to prepare by listening/watching some of those. Getting the text that you'll use for your course is probably worthwhile if you haven't done so already.
