1) I start General Physics I Fall 2012. I would greatly appreciate it if someone could guide me to some good lecture notes. Last semester, I found wonderful organic chemistry notes online that really helped me out. These are colorful, up-to-date and easy to understand pdf's of the lecture notes. It would make me ridiculously happy if I could find more like them for physics. 2) In developing this new physics foundation for myself, what are the areas I should focus on? What are the keystones of general physics? The purpose of asking this is similar to understanding how to do derivatives or integrals before starting calculus. What are the most used tools in Physics (beginner to intermediate level)? Physics Forums + love of science = accelerated learning Currently, I'm taking my own notes based on the textbook, reading physics I for dummies and working HW problems. I also have the Motion Mountain textbook (which I haven't started).
