- Extensive classical mechanics (including some Lagrangian and Hamiltonian formalism)

- E/M (at the level of Physics C... so that would include Maxwell's equations, etc.)

- Very basic quantum mechanics (construction of Schroedinger's Equation, bra-ket notation, solutions to the infinite and finite square well potentials, basic operators... momentum [not angular, just linear], kinetic energy, potential energy)

My knowledge of math is as follows:

- Basic Linear algebra (at the level of a first year undergraduate course)

- Single and Multivariable calculus (at the level of a first year undergraduate course)

- Differential equations (at the level of a first year undergraduate course)

I'm taking QM this upcoming Fall, so I was just wondering what I should be expecting... and I don't really want to buy a book yet, because I was just planning to use the book my university wishes us to buy (which they haven't released yet...). If I could learn a lot of QM over the summer, it would really help.
