Main Question or Discussion Point
I just transfered to Georgia Tech from Georgia State and I'm registering for classes. I ave taken Intro Phys 1 and 2, and intro to modern physics. I have math up to DE. I will be taking Classical Mechanics this semester, and am wondering if it is a good idea to take QM before completing the classical mechanics? We will be using the Griffiths book. In the introduction the author says that a strong grasp of classical mechanics is crucial. I got A's in all physics classes so far, but honestly my grasp of classical physics could be much stronger than it is now. Most students taking QM will have already taken classical mechanics, although classical mechanics is not listed as a prerequisite for QM. Will I be handicapped by taking it this semester? Because it seems like the classical mechanics class really refines your problem solving skills. Thanks.
