I'm going to be self-studying Tipler's modern physics over the summer. I just got the third edition for $7.71 off eBay and it's in pristine condition :)

I am trying to find a detailed syllabus instead of me reading every page and doing every problem.

I have found some syllabi but they only give assigned problems. I am having a hard time doing a self-study. It's hard to remain on task with no guidance and so much material.

Any suggestions from those who do this often?
