Engineer becomes physicist? help me.

  1. May 10, 2005 #1
    I have engineering background (aerospace), and now about to embark on master degree in physics (if I pass the qualifying test). I learn electromagnetism, quantum mechanics, etc .. etc ...myself for the last 1.5 yrs.

    Is there anyone out there with the same kind of my situation before?

    What is the best book on statistical physics? I found most books are hard to follow.

    The best book on particle physics with lots of examples? introduction to gauge theory and qft?
