Hi, last month I graduated with a BSc in Physics and have decided to take a break for a while to decide my next move. Also, having left Uni, its made me relise that I actually have to decide on a future career, something I've kind of put off untill now, and how much I enjoy Physics.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm pretty sure now that I would really like to study for a Masters in a few years time, I'm slightly unsure what at the moment, but i think it will proberly be in Theoretical Physics or a Mathematics type course. Though I think I'm gonna wait a bit longer and go with the flow and not set anything in concrete yet.

Anyway, since leaving Uni ive been trying to keep learning, and have been trying to complete as many problems in as many books as possible. Which brings me to my first question. I want to buy some books so that I can learn as much Mathematics as possible to prepare me for a possible future career in Theoretical Physics or some kind of Mathematicall Modelling. Basically I would like to start from the very basic of mathematics so that I can get my foundations sterdy and work my way up. So I was wondering if anyone here can direct me to what books I should get?

My second question is what kind of jobs are available that I could use this knowledge for? I was thinking there must be loads, since you can apply mathematcis to almost anything.

Thanks for your time and reading this, I look forward to any help anyone would like to give.
