(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Ug physics self study alongwith engineering....please help.....!!!

I belong to india, and couldn't get a decent physics ug course for reasons i don't have time to explain. I have now ended up in an engineering course and plan to self study and take the gre after 4 years. And yeah, forgot to say, my interest lies purely in theoretical physics and no other subdivision of physics.

I have bought standard books for almost all courses in ug physics and ug math as well.

Is it possible to complete ug physics withing 3 years if i can devote at most 3 hours a day to my physics and math study? The engineering course is hopeless and i wont be getting any help in either phy. Or math from there.

I am listing the books i have. Please don't suggest any new ones as i'm not gonna buy them and would like to stick to the following:

Physics:

Apart from halliday, resnick,

intro. To mechanics - kleppner and kloenkow

electrodynamics - d.j.griffiths

quantum mech. - griffiths + s. Gasiorowicz

heat and thermo - zeemansky and dittman

statistical mech. - kerson huang

classical mech. (hamiltonian and lagrangian) - h. Glodstein

string theory - b. Zwiebach

maths:

Calculus - tom m. Apostol (both volumes) + michael spivak

principles of mathematical analysis - walter rudin

linear algebra - anton and rorres

real and complex analysis - walter rudin

numerical analysis - attkinson

modern algebra - i.n. Herstein

is it possible to complete the study of the above books in 3 years at a rate of 3 to max. 4 hours a day? If not i could leave a few math topics....but roughly is it possible??

Also, is it possible to be a pretty good student of engineering too, since my gpa will matter in grad. Admissions in u.s.

I know that "everything is possible" and that it all depends on me, but i mean, is it practically possible, without getting yourself completely burned out??

Thanks...
