Mext Scholarship Help

  1. Apr 25, 2015 #1
    This year im triyng to obtain the mext scholarship. One of the requeriments is going truth a lot of exams, one of them is the physics one, when i saw the previous test , i realized that with my current knowledge i can not even get a 30/100. In my country most of the subjects on the test are not explored so well in highschool, because of this i do not really know where can i start studying. Can someone recomendme books from where i can study all the theory involded in this test?

    Here is a previous test http://www.studyjapan.go.jp/pdf/questions/10/ga-phy.pdf

    Note: I am no really good with my english redaction, i apologize for inconvenience.

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    I galnced at your link and it looks like basic Mechanics/E&M/Optics/Thermo. If you've studied calculus any of the introductory books in the text book section of the fourms would be a good start. Alternatively, there are various free books/videos online which you can find that are just as good.

    I'm assuming japanese is your first language right? I don't know where you would find any good resources in your native language, but they must exist. Try googling to see if any of your universities put up free physics videos/texts.

    My native language is spanish, but i do not have any problem with reading english books. Recentely in my city i looked for a tutor, he said to me that he do not dominate those topics, i will look for the books that you mentioned. Thank you.
