IMO, those 3 books are enough to get a good score. For extra credit, I suggest you understand what a Lagrangian is and what a partition function is. Not too detailed, but enough to be able to write them out for basic systems.

i know(theory) these books like back of my hand but still i am not confident about the subject, the reason might be the fact that none of them contain the numerical questions asked in the paper.

I have a B.S in Physics and now i am studying for the Physics GRE. I still have all my textbooks, but i know that I wont need to study all of them.
I know that Fundamentals of Physics by Halliday Resnick Walker and Modern Physics by Kenneth Krane Will be be extremely useful to study. It seems like the whole text will be important.
All I need to do is get a 50% on this exam to get into the program that I want.
My question is: How in depth should I study from the "Senior/Junior Level" texbooks such as Introduction to Quantum Mechanics by Griffiths and Introduction to Electrodynamics by Griffiths. Also, I think Classical Mechanics by Taylor will be useful for its Lagrangian calculations.
So, again: How in depth should I go? What topics should i focus on in Quantum Mechanics and Electromagnetism because these get really complicated as some of you may know.
I also have a book called "3000 Solved Problems in Physics by Shaum" so if you guys know this book please let me know which topics I should focus on.
Any help would be nice
Thanks for readin
