It's my first time to ask a question here

I am now taking a Thermodynamics course and I have the authority to choose what topics to study in this course.

My intention is to be able to study statistical mechanics afterward. So I need thermodynamics that will be useful when studying statistical mechanics.

So I'd like to ask: what thermodynamics topics I will need if I will study statistical mechanics.

another question is: I am studynig from a rather old book "Heat and Thermodynamics by zemansky". Is this a good book?

Thanks
