I am a new member to Physics Forums, actually I browse the site quite often, so I thought it was time I officially joined. I am a former high school AP/IB physics teacher, now a 2nd year physics graduate student finishing my classes and prepping for qualifiers. I'm currently taking Classical Electrodynamics (semester 2), Statistical Physics, and Quantum (semester 2). Electrodynamics (with the infamous Jackson textbook) is extremely humbling. If you've been there, then you understand. Always looking for ways to increase my productivity and efficiency and appreciate advice from those who've been through physics grad school. My biggest hurdle is truly retaining what I "learn". We cover content so quickly it is a wonder that I process any of it at all. Re-learning isn't efficient, however with time constraints, it is my reality. As a former educator, I find this very frustrating. Thanks and I look forward to making a positive contribution to Physics Forums.
