Hi everybody,

Just recently I got an epiphany (or a crazy idea, I don't really know which one) that I want to pursue a masters, with the emphasis of skipping my masters half way through in order to upgrade to a doctorate. The program that I am in (B.Sc in Medical Physics, 2nd year) does not have any courses that relate to particle physics directly and I am wondering if anyone can recommend any books or textbooks that will allow a person with only 2 years of a university physics background to pick up and learn the basics of particle physics.

Once understanding the basics, I plan on broadening my understanding by reading more on this stream of physics and if anyone can suggest more of an intermediate level book or textbook that would be great as well.

Thanks
