Hi there, just need to give a little bit of my background before I get into my question. When I graduated high school I was confused about what to do so I decided to join the navy to figure out what I wanted to do and get college money. I enlisted to become a Missile technician on a nuclear powered submarine. So fast-forward four years and here I am today. I've researched many things and I found out that I want to be a Astrophysicist and I am going to probably end up going to University of Washington. Unfortunately, I didn't know much about college or have anyone who knew a lot about them, so I will have to be a transfer student rather than entering as a freshman(I have taken a few college courses in what spare time I get). I also will be a 'first-generation' college student. Meaning no one in my family has gone to college and I really have no one to advise me on how to register for college, where to go, what to ask and so on. So currently from what I have read up, I should have a Calculus level math education and basic physics education before starting to take physics courses. I also read many sites that suggested that I double major in physics/astronomy if I plan to go into "advanced work in the astronomy field" which I took to mean astrophysics. So essentially, I want to become an astrophysicist and I currently am getting my math and physic abilities up to par so I'm not too far behind, but I feel if I don't learn more and get more information I will be too far behind. I was just wanting any advice, assistance, books I could read, or websites. Thanks.
