Hey Guys! I joined the forums here recently, and have a vast appreciation and love for the study of Radioactive and Nuclear physics. I'm currently in highschool, and am wondering what advice you guys have for my planned career path. My questions are: What tests or classes are best for college credit, (AP, Clep tests, SAT) and what are the best ways to prepare for them? What degrees and colleges are best for my planned line of work? Should I study for one particular field (such as nuclear engineering) or should I study to become a nuclear physicist? Would this broaden my job oppurtunities? What suggested reading do you recommend? I'm trying to learn as much as I can now to smooth it out later on. What will be my day to day career like? I know it will vary greatly, so don't feel like you have to explain every single one. What are the benefits and requirements for working in the military? The educational system? The energy business? Which do you recommend? Thanks for your time guys! I look forward to what you have to say.
