Hello. I study in Canada, and the system here seems to be a little different than the US. Here, in our first year physics courses (mostly at universities like U of T, Waterloo, McGill etc), we cover Classical Mechanics and Electricity & Magnetism without any textbook. Then, in second year, using Morin and Griffiths respectively. We also cover Quantum Mechanics 1 using Griffiths. However, what I've heard is that in the US, you use those books in first year (at least for classical mechanics and electricity & magnetism). Can anyone here confirm if that is at least vaguely correct? I've also heard that Griffiths for QM is a third/fourth year book. However, at my school and most US schools, it is used in second year. So that's confusing me a little. Along with that, in the descriptions of Kleppner & Kolenkow, Morin and Purcell, they're listed as freshmen level books, yet we use them in second year. That's confusing as well. I did check out the course listings at several universities, but they don't have specific times (e.g. take this course in this year). Thanks.
