[how to study] Physics

  1. Sep 10, 2014 #1
    You guys are real monsters in physics. To be honest I struggle to understand it and try so hard to understand it conceptually, but things just doesn't fit. Any tip to study physics?

    Read a lot and do many problems. You must stay focused on learning the topic and not get distracted by other things.

    Slowly things will start to come together. Introductory Physics often relies on a formula for each condition but as you develop more you'll find that you can derive these special formulas from more elementary laws and that's when physics get interesting.

    What part of physics is giving you trouble?
