Hi all. Need Advice. Thank you :) Hi all. Sorry if this kind of question has been posted but I try googling my question, so here is where I end up. Most of the threads that I read didn't actually specifically answer my question. Anyway, my question is, "How do I study and become a theoretical Physicists" I know this question is vague. Currently I am doing my BSc Mathematics and Economics, still first year. I know I am still pretty far from being able to study theoretical physics, so I don't intend to pursue theoretical physics study anytime soon yet. I just want to have an idea. And of course, how much money I need to pursue this dream. If this is any help, this is a link of the subjects I am studying for my BSc http://www.simge.edu.sg/idc/groups/ge_partner_uni_uol/documents/downloadable_file/idcpub002986.pdf [Broken] I live in Singapore and my country doesn't seems to offer this field of study. Hope someone could help by showing me like a path, where should I begin, how do I go from there and which institution can I look for. :) Second question: I already have a basic understanding of physics. But during my free time, I want to do some reading on physics subjects, Like thermodynamics, cosmology, string theory. I don't intend to learn all at once lol. Just recommendation for a textbook related to the study of theoretical physics. thank you all!
