Preparing for Master

  • #1
In preparation for my Master in theoretical physics, I have decided to refresh my memory in classical mechanics, classical electrodynamics and quantum mechanics. In classical mechanics I have started by focusing on "Mechanics: Volume 1 (Course of Theoretical Physics) by L.D. Landau, E.M. Lifgarbagez, J.B. Sykes, and J.S. Bacon" while looking up things that are not clear to me in "Classical Mechanics, 3rd Ed. by Herbert Goldstein, Charles P. Poole Jr., and John L. Safko" . My aim in classical mechanics is to get a deeper understanding from what I was tought in the undergraduate course. That is because I think classical mechanics are somewhat of a predecessor to quantum mechanics and I think it would help me to further understand the philosophy behind it. So I would like to ask if someone has better books to recommend concidering the conditions.
