Comming back to physics after 3 years

  1. Jul 3, 2010 #1
    Hey

    So, I did my physics degree a while ago, and I've been missing the head hurting that theoretical physics used to cause me; I'm guess I a bit of a masochist :P

    As I only did special relativity at uni, I've decided to learn the general variety.

    Can anyone recommend any text books on differential geometry and tensors?

    I'm not a fan of overly concise maths books; who is?! I need something with a decent level of explanation and worked examples (as I don't have a tutor to explain things anymore).

    Any other advice on tackling this subject would be well received.

    Thanks
