Main Question or Discussion Point

I am a physics student just finishing my sophomore year, and i was looking into what i could expect in upcoming intermediate mechanics. I noticed that Lagrange mechanics seems to be a big topic, and that i need to understand it to move forward in my studies. Being too impatient to wait for the course i was hoping someone could refer me to a good source to learn more about it, as my attempts to find information on the internet have been fruitless.

Try looking at 'Classical Dynamics of particles and systems' by Thornton&Marion. Or go to your school's library and look at practically any book on Classical Mechanics. Or find what textbook you will use for Classical Mechanics next year and buy it in advance.

Goldstein is a pretty good source, and if you're planning on staying with physics, a handy addition to your bookshelf. Also Landau's book.
