# Reading Feynmann's Lectures in the Holidays.

I'm wanting to read some physics text these holidays. Would you recommend starting with Feynmann's lecture series 1-3? I can get this for approx. $99 AUD. Then I heard that Quantum Theory by David Bohm was also good and I would therefore proceed with Bohm's text following Feynmann's. Any suggestions? Note: I would also certainly do some of the problems as I go. So not just reading. ## Answers and Replies Related General Discussion News on Phys.org I'm wanting to read some physics text these holidays.

"These holidays" is not enough time , with any stretch of imagination, to go through Feynman lectures. Start with Feynman, it will take a lot of time to comprehend all the material in it, and work problems. Years, if its your first serious exposure to physics.

I have completed physics courses previously. In relativity, quantum and electromagnetism. However that was over a year ago and well Feynman's Lecture series has always been on my list of to dos however never really found the time until now and also was not sure of the length of Feynman's series and how long it would take me.
