I'm trying to accumulate a pretty good sized physics library to take with my to graduate school. Any input on your favorites for the big 4 classes, especially classical mechanics which i've yet to find a book I want to buy, would be awesome.
So far I've got:
Quantum Theory - David Bohm
Principles of Quantum Mechanics - Shankar
Problems in Quantum Mechanics: With Solutions - G. L. Squires
Introduction to Quantum Mechanics - Griffiths
For Electricity and Magnetism:
Introduction to Electrodynamics - Griffiths
Student's Guide to Maxwell's Equations - Daniel Fleisch
Analytical Mechanics - Fowles and Cassidy
Classical and Statistical Thermodynamics - Carter
Understanding Thermodynamics - H.C. Van Ness
Thermodynamics - Fermi
Obviously these are all at the undergraduate level and I'm not very familiar with the best graduate level texts.
