Hey , i'm really new to physics , in the sence i've never taken it before but now that i'm in university i have too, i was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of a good learning site so i can catch up and grasp all these concepts that dont seem to add up math sytles but for some odd reason make sence in the physics world, like adding vectors , that just doesn't make sence to me.

thanks for any help you can give...

Wel... PF is a good learning site. :wink: Welcome.

Do you have any specific queries? Any areas of particular vagueness?

Don't you have to take Physics in highschool before you can take University level physics? I'd think it would be quite hard to make such a big jump without having knowledge or atleast sufficient knowledge of the basics which you learn in highschool.

No, unfortunately there are many places where physics is not required in secondary school. There are even places where physics is not even OFFERED but don't get me started on this.

I would think that, in the United Kingdom, English would be required for entrance into the university and "LostPuppy" seems a bit weak on that too!

Yeah, LostPuppy, that's one hell of a long sentence you got there. :)
