Order To Learn Physics Stuff

  1. Jul 22, 2012 #1
    OK, so this is kind of related to a thread I started in the Books section. I am currently (well, I will be in a few weeks) a math grad student. We have to take grad-level courses from a school outside of math. I want to do Physics because I remember thinking it was interesting when I took the classes, but I haven't really done much Physics since then. So, the Physics classes I have taken are just the regular freshman calc-based physics stuff and one class in computational physics (a class I got nothing out of because I didn't really understand what was being computed, so in answering this, you may assume I have only taken the first two physics classed.)

    Now, my goal before I get done is to have a fairly decent grasp of Classical Mechanics, Thermodynamics and E&M. Now, I don't really know how possible this is, as I don't really know what encompasses these subjects. However, is there a certain order I should go in when studying these? Would it make sense to the Classical Mechanics before E&M? Or would it be possible to do two at a time?

    Feel free to ask me any questions if you need to.
