Getting started in Physics/cosmology

  1. May 13, 2010 #1
    I've long been interested in physics and space in general, but until recently I haven't really considered formally studying the subject. I'm coming here for advice on how I should get started on the subject. I'm going to have to begin at a community college because of my budget, so I'm wondering what kind of two year degrees would fit in well into a physics curriculum?

    Also, I'm going to have to do a lot of catching up on math, I've always found math alone painfully boring, but when it's applied it can become quite interesting. Do any of you know any teaching resources that focus on applied math (real world equations) to make learning easier for someone like me?

    Thanks for any input!
