Main Question or Discussion Point

hi
im new here sorry if i made the post in wrong place
im from iran finishing high school (18 years old )
i like physics , math and computer programming
i want to start studying physics (first priority) and math but i dont know where to start from or which level i am

i mean the books here are so stupid its mostly about memorizing the formulas rather than creativity or applications or learining ... and also they have ambiguity in many parts and in some books there is no integrity between differenet

for three months i cannot read much because of exams but after that i will have a lot of time to read
can someone suggest some books or give me a link ?

thanks
i took a look at books and listed the lessons

calculus :
-Sequences
-integrity (books has so much ambiguity in this part)
-limit
-differentials
-integrals

discrete mathematics :
-Graphs (very good at it)
-numbers theory (not good at it)
-Combinatorics (good at it
-probability (very good at it)

analytic geometry : (not very good at working with formulas but my imagination is good)
-vectors
-line and page
-conic sections
-matrices and determinants
-linear equations

physics : (only important chapters .. there was too many)
-geometric light and mirrors
- thermodynamics
-static electric
-moving electric
-electromagnetic induction
-capacitor
-dynamics
-kinesiology
-oscillating movement
-mechanical waves
-sound
-electromagnetic waves
-atomic physics
-nuclear physics

Mathwise, you can study stuff like multivariable calculus, linear algebra or abstract algebra. Or you might study calculus more deeply through books like Apostol.

For physics, it might be worth it to learn a little bit about differential equations and then to tackle books like Kleppner-Kolenkow.

If I recall correctly, you do not need the knowledge of differential equations to start working through Kleppner and Kolenkow. I suggest you start with it right away. You can pick up differential equations as you need them, or you can learn them concurrently if you want.
