I'm about to begin a bachelor of science with a physics major. I've already found some books on electrodynamics and relativity and such, but I can't find the motivation nor resources to intepret some of the more abstract mathematics, especially to do with linear algebra, tensor analysis and other similar concepts.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Could somebody, prefferably university academics, please give me some recomendations on reading material for both the mathematical and physical sides of first year physics? I find it extensively useful to have a firm knowledge of a topic before studying it formally, though cannot find the right away about getting a head start here.
