How do you learn physics "correctly"? Hi. I was wondering about this. I saw this thread: https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?t=372653&page=2 I saw this: (highlight mine) Does this mean that if you go to a school to learn physics, or any other method of learning physics, chances are you're not getting what you need? If so, how do you get it? How do you get ALL the relevant background and context for a particular point? How can you make sure you have ALL the relevant background and context before moving up to a higher level of physics? It seems that physics is full of all kinds of catches and "gotchas" which one has to be careful of, and which may easily mislead the student. What should you do? Does this mean the schools aren't teaching it right? If "yes", what should you do?
