Few months ago I watched a documentary about string theory and I found it STUNNING so I started to read a little about modern physics. I got myself a textbook called "physics for scientists and engineers" which doesn't require advanced math to go through.The modern physics section in it starts with "Relativity".I don't know how detailed it is but it covers special relativity in about 40 pages explaining the main points needed to understand it like the MM experiment, the two postulates of the theory, time dilation, length contraction, space time graphs ...etc..

Reading those pages felt really good, I really liked it and after watching many videos on the web and reading lots of stuff here and there, I decided to devote some time every day to read/study physics but I don't want to just watch videos made for ordinary people, I want to take it further, I was good at math in School but I had to give up math and study biology to get into my desired college (I studied Algebra, basics of calculus, trigonometry) I don't think they were so much but at least I won't start from scratch so I'm willing to study more advanced math and I'm sure I'll need to do that.

I want to go on with stuff like Relativity, Quantum mechanics ,string theory.. Let's say I have the same goal of Einstein's (UNIFICATION)

I'm full of curiosity and enthusiasm.I do know that it's not going to be easy but I will try my best.

What do physics college students study?.. any recommended textbooks?

Thank you
