    I don't know how much physics background you have, but Feynman's Lectures on Physics are rather good... if you can keep up with them. There aren't practice problems, and you'll need to absorb information rather well...partially knowing the stuff would be a good idea.

    If you want them, I have all three volumes as pdf files...which I believe are about 30 mb each. I could stick 'em on my website or just send them to you over AIM if you want.

    I've taken some physical science classes, never a full-blown physics class though.

    If you couldn't tell from the title I have a new favorite book and I thought I should share it with everyone. Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield is an awsome book. Great historical fiction tale of the culture of Sparta and the battle of Thermopoly (sp?). Anyone read this?

    Oh and I realize I'm sounding like a n00b spammer here - but this book is so good I don't care. Epic! Incredible charectars, plot, discriptions, and best realistic battle scenes I've ever read....If you haven't read it yet do it now! (Oh and the unabridged book on tape is really well done for those of you who can't read. )
