I am self-studying Physics in the second year of my undergrad(too late i know) as I never really understood many basic concepts in my high school as clearly as i now do. In my enthusiasm to teach myself Physics I bought a number of books but none seem on par with stuff described on many forums by advanced learners.. I am terribly confused which text to use as an accompaniment to MIT-OCW Lectures. I am taking Classical Mechanics and plan to take Electricity and Magnetism followed by Vibrations and waves. (i cant get the ohanian anywhere..please suggest a substitute) So I need you guys to advise me about the texts i use to accompany the above courses..... I have the following texts and I have access to a huge library so please tell me which books i should retain and which i shouldn't, I have: 1. Fundamentals of Physics- Halliday, Resnick, Walker 8th edition extended 2. H.C.Verma concepts in Physics I have borrowed the following: 3. Problems in general physics- Irodov 4. Laws of Mechanics- Irodov 5. Electromagnetics- irodov 6. Newtonian mechanics- A.P.French 7. Mechanics volume 1 berkeley course Should i get the Feynman Lectures; Landau and Lifshitz? Are they too advanced.. When can i use them if they are? Also Please suggest courses like Walter Lewin's series on OCW for UNDERGRAD level..these topics Special and general relativity Quantum mechanics Thermodynamics and statistical physics Solid state physics Electronics Nuclear and Particle physics Atomic and Optical physics All my preparation is aimed towards enabling myself to handle concepts with ease and appreciate the subject but at the same time prepare me for the screening test for a masters in my national university :P Thank you so much people!
