Hello all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am currently a Junior in High School with a deep interest in Physics/Mathematics, specifically in the area of theoretical Physics and String Theory. I was accepted to a summer course on String Theory and am quite excited. The course stated that the only prerequisite is Single Variable Calculus, which I am quite comfortable with. They mentioned that a physics background is helpful, yet not necessary as the course is mostly Math. I expect it to move quickly and cover a lot of curriculum in a short amount of time, and I wish to be prepared. Besides Single Variable Calculus, I have dabbled in Multivariable Calc, and have some experience with complex numbers and other higher level mathematics. I was wondering if there were any resources/books/websites/etc. that would be helpful to prepare me for material in this course. These resources should cover the individual topics or String Theory as a whole, either way it would be helpful. Thank you for your help in advance.
