So I've ordered Taylor's book in classical mechanics and I need some advice. My plan is to solve as many problems as I can in classical mechanics, since it seems that the type of logical thinking that is needed in classical mechanics will surface time and time again in following physics classes. So I want to get in the habit of knowing how to solve these types of problems and becoming more comfortable with them. First question, around how long should problems in Taylor's classical mechanics take? Roughly how many can I expect to finish in a given period of time? Second question, anyone else aiming to study classical mechanics this summer? We can discuss certain materials/h.w. problems and bounce ideas off each other. Third question, is it reasonable that solving problems in Taylor's classical mechanics will improve my problem solving skills in other physics classes?
