    What is your backround in mathematics?

    Although I have not read "Theoretical Minimum", I have seen Susskins Lectures and he assumes the viewer has a decent knowlege of mathematics (Trig,Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations (and Partial Differential Equations), Linear Algebra, Statistics....). Since "Theoretical Minimum" was written for a larger audience, the mathematics contained in it is most likeley watered down ( I scanned an open copy on amazon). If you would like a deep understanding of what Susskind is talking about, there is no substitute for years of practiced mathematics and physics.

    i just breezed a fgew pages on amazon and he seems to assume very little math - he even explains radians and trig functions . i recommend just beginning it and seeing how you do.
