Modern Physics Text for self-study

  1. Nov 26, 2014 #1
    As the title implies, I am looking for a decent introductory modern physics text for self-study purposes. I'm a Biochemistry major, so this is partially for my own enjoyment and partially for preparation for Physical Chemistry II. I know that there are a lot of threads on this, but I always like to try to get the most up to date opinions that I can. I have a fair understanding of Calculus, but have not taken Diff Eq yet, so if that changes anyone's opinion or makes modern physics pointless to try to learn, I can always wait. I am honestly more interested in concepts as I start off rather than knowing how to work all of the problems, but I would enjoy a book with decent problems sets if possible. Thanks!
