Main Question or Discussion Point

School is almost over and Summer is almost in the doors, Next year I'm in year 12, but what I'm thinking is to study in summer better than wasting it because next year is an important year to go through college.
Looking to go to the faculaty of engineer"(mechanical engineer) , I need some lessons to be tough in . So I hope some advice in giving me the suitable lessons in math and physics.

Thank You.

You're only in 12th grade. Go take some stuff apart. Build a bicycle. Learn how to weld. Have fun. Learn calculus in the fall.

Actually I think Mooktank has some pretty good advice. Engineering isn't just theory. Sometimes you have to get your hands dirty to understand the principles at work.

When I was a teenager, my friends and I used to build and race radio-controlled cars. I learned a lot more about electronics from that hobby than I did from formal classes, at least until I got up to senior level physics courses.

Just read some books to get familiar with it. But like the last two said, go and have fun.

I was in the same position for a while...read 1 book. Didn't understand a thing. Then finally got into the class. I aced it.

I see, but my year 12 freinds are facing lot of toture in understanding Math and physcis.
Infact, they always say that if they learned in summer was much better.?

Well, if you really want some suggested reading, a good source might be any of the 12th grade teachers at your school. Just catch them after class, or send them an email, explaining that you're keen to do some reading over the summer, and if they have any textbooks or websites they might suggest.
