I am 29 years old, and I've decided to go back to college for Physics. I actually own my own business right now, but the beauty of Physics and knowing about everything going on in the universe and how it works has been a passion of mine since I was three. As I've gotten older I've realized that life is too short not to fill your life with something you love. Unfortunately, this is what I should have done when I was 17, not a 29 year old mother and wife. I did go to college for a few years for a fine arts degree, but I've basically been out of scool now for 12 years with anything that would have to do with Physics.
I've been spending all my spare time trying to reteaching myslef algebra, trig, and calculus. I've also been reading anything I get my hands on regarding higher math and Physics. I really need a class, and the guidance of an actual teacher.
What types of "refresher courses" should I take before I go back? I have time totake three courses unmatriculated this summer, and I figured some math courses would be a good idea to get everything fresh in my mind again. Does anybody have some suggestions about what I need to brush up on to make going back to school for Physics this fall easier? If it helps; at this point I am looking at Theoretical Physics.
Please some give me some suggestions!
