What field of engineering are you studying? What subject area are you interested in pertaining to that field?I'm going to grad school for engineering in the fall and just got my BS in Physics. What should I read/study over the summer to get some preparation for engineering studies at the graduate level?
Is this supposed to be sarcasm?i recommend don quixote book 1, and, if you can find it, the Phantom Blot (starring mickey mouse), and maybe what is mathematics? by courant and robbins, or geometry and the imagination by hilbert.
these are books you may not see i college so its the last time to get a chance to see their perspective.
Sure, I think theres nothing wrong with taking time out to read some books that are not hard core science related (batman, etc). Also, more math is always a good thing.does it seem poor advice or sarcastic? those are some of my favorite books. the idea is that this is the last free summer for a long time. why not read something good, that is not required? apparently you are not familiar with the great blot mystery. and courant and robbins or hilbert will teach you more math than a slew of college courses, and show the connections between different areas. unfortunately i did not read your prior post , so there was no intent to counter it.
