Guide a noob.

    Wassup fellas,

    I'll take this opportunity to ask the same old worn out question which every noob asks. I absolutely loved sciences and mathematics back when I was in high school till 10th grade. Not saying I was some kinda super genius or something though. :)

    Kinda lost way after that. But recently, I've regained the passion for philosophy, science (particularly physics) and maths. Any suggestions regarding how I should beging?


    Edit: btw, I'm pursuing a degree in computer sciences.

    What's your math background? If you know basic calculus I think that you can begin from a book like Serway (Mechanics) or Halliday and Resnick.

    Yup I do have a background in calculus. And incidentally, I have that book too. Thanks.

    How far do you want to go? What's your goal in this self-study?

    Honestly, I don't have any specific goals. Like I said, its just an interest which I want to pursue quite sincerely. I'll figure it out as I go...

    If I have to specify a goal, I think I'd want to develop a broad base which might serve as foundation for quantum computing and computational physics which might be useful in future.
