New Member Looking for Some Guidance Through the Wonderful World of Physics

    I apologise greatly if this thread has been posted before, I had a look around and couldn't find anything similar. If I come across as ignorant, I apologise in advance.

    I used to enjoy physics back at school, but then changed to do a course on Computer Science. I later got diagnosed wit ha learnign disability which went unnoticed until recently. Due to now knowing about it, I can learn much faster and enjoy learning much more. I reached Higher physics,chemistry and mathematics from the SQA. I wish to learn properly as a hobby.

    Is it possible for someone to help guide me to introductions to each of the main feilds in each science, so that I have a starting point and basic understanding of the general aspects?
