Hello! As my title suggests, I want to know about the difficulty of quantum mechanics and several of the prerequisites I should know before I begin such a venture. The following is the path of college courses that I will be taking over the next two years. Year 2013-2014 Mathematics: S1 Differential Equations, S2 Mathematical methods for Physics Physics: S1 Physics 181 - Electricity and Magnetism with calculus S2 Physics 182 - Optics, relativity, basic quantum mechanics, radiation Year 2014-2015 Mathematics: S1 Linear Algebra S2 Multivariable Calculus Physics: S1 Classical Mechanics - Newtonian mechanics, methods of Lagrange and Hamilton S2 Quantum Mechanics Are the above courses sufficient before I start Quantum Mechanics? I will be fourteen when I take the course, and would the above prerequisites be enough for learning the topic. My college lists the prerequisites as Physics 182 and "Mathematical Methods for Physics". By that time I would have completed those courses, but would that keep me sufficiently prepared for the class. After all, I do not want to struggle. Thank You.
