How to stay in touch with physics in a gap year?

  1. Jun 15, 2010 #1

    I just finished school and I want to study physics, but I have to wait about 1.5 years until I can start with it. What would you recommend to stay in touch with physics during that time? Reading books would be the thing I came up with, would you say that reading in forums like this would help as well?

    I'd also search the web for online physics lectures. I believe MIT has a good series of videos for calculus-based physics, if you're familiar enough with the higher math.

    Thank you, that is a nice idea. Calculus Physics sounds like a good followup to what I have been doing in school.
