Studying How should I go about relearning Physics?

  1. Nov 7, 2016 #1
    Hello, I'm new to the forum and am looking for some guidance from people who have been in similar situations as me. I'm currently working in the semiconductor industry and feel dissatisfied with what I am doing. I graduated with a BS in Physics in 2014 and I am now trying to study for the pGRE so I can apply for grad schools. However, I feel like my study materials aren't exactly designed for this. I am using the Feynman lecture series as my reintroduction to physics, but I am having a hard time doing the exercises that come along with it. Since it takes me a while to do any of the problems, I don't think this is truly the best way for me to relearn the material. Does anyone have a better suggestion for self learning? I would like to take the test in April, but at the rate I am going, I will fail. Any advice or information is greatly appreciated.

    Check out the book "Conquering the Physics GRE". It might not do much for you, but maybe it will give you good insight into what areas you need to brush up on.

    Yeah, I have been using that too. I think I might need to get a more basic textbook and work through it.
