Hello, :smile:
I am a 37 years old with a BS in physics
I decided to go for a Masters degree in Physics since it only takes about two years , i know it looks late but i love physics even though i wasn't so good in BS,
and since i want to finish it good and fast i need someone to answer these tow questions plz :
is it helpful to prepare my self at home by studying specific books or courses in physics and maths, or no need for that?
if i should to do that, what are those courses and books?
thanks a lot and have a great day

You will have to re-study all the fundamental courses you had during your bachelor, e.g. electrodynamics, classical and quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics.
Refreshing on mathematics will be essential too.

Doing all of that at home can get annoying, hence you supplement your learning at some with the video lectures available online e.g. like those by Prof.Susskind (Stanford University) :

It depends on how much you remember from your undergraduate days.

It might be beneficial to pick up Mathematical Methods in the Physical Sciences by Boas to refresh your mathematics.

Then you can try to go through typical upper level textbooks. Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems by Marion & Thornton, Electromagnetic Fields by Wangness, and Principles of Quantum Mechanics by Shankar.
