I'm trying to make a check list of courses I need to study and review for the GRE Physics Subject Test. I have a few questions following the list. Thank-you for any help. Engineering Physics I Engineering Physics II Modern Physics Electricity & Magnetism Statistical Mechanics & Thermodynamics Quantum Mechanics The GRE says Electromagnetism. Do courses called Electricity & Magnetism usually cover the same thing? Is undergraduate Electrodynamics usually the same thing too? Are Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formulations learned from a specific course or learned spread out over several courses? I've seen some colleges with undergraduate courses titled Classical Mechanics, Physical Mechanics or Classical Dynamics. Which of these is for learning Lagrangian and Hamiltonian? Again, are dedicated courses over Lagrangian and Hamiltonian common, or are they spread out over many courses? Do I need to study both statistical mechanics and statistical thermodynamics, or just statistical mechanics and non-statistical thermodynamics (i.e. basic thermodynamic systems)?
