I'm going to be majoring in physics in the spring.

  1. Sep 1, 2008 #1
    I have had no previous experience with physics, but I know it's what I want to do and I believe that I am capable of learning an applied science. I also have never taken a calculus course in highschool. I came here for some recommendations on primer books that I could read to be better prepared for university in the spring. Thank you.

    No, I would say go over the mathematics you learnt at school. You'll re-learn all the physics at university, so don't bother with going over your physics. If you really want to get a start, try read a calculus book, you can get it from the library or what not. Something like Stewart would be good. Especially the bits on vectors.
