Feynman Lectures

  1. Nov 8, 2014 #1
    Hello everyone. My name is Sam and I am an engineering student. I am very interested in studying physics. I am currently using physics by Halliday/Resnick/Krane. I have read good reviews on Feynman lectures but not really sure about its content. Is Feynman lectures a good supplement or is it too early for me to understand it?

    I do not recommend the Feynman undergrad lectures to students starting out learning physics.
    You are better to suppliment your text with an opencoarsware lecture series.

    They're free online, so why not take an hour to read through some of them? See if you understand it and if they're helpful.
