Math books?

Postby collectedsoul » Thu May 28, 2009 8:25 am

I'm looking to gather all the resources I require for my subject test in Physics next year and I wanted to know what Math book/books I need for reference, etc. I'm getting some calculus books like 'calculus' by gilbert strang. What other areas of math will I need to focus on and what books will help me? Preferably I'm looking for one big book of math that'll take care of my reference needs for all math subjects.

closest thing I can think of is

"mathematical methods in the physical sciences" by Boas.

It's a little more advanced than you'll need for either Q or P GRE, but is pretty comprehensive.
