I was wondering which books would be the most useful for electronics
and experimental physics.
Also, I wanted to ask you. For the moment I am planning to study mainly on with the two Schaum's book: "Physics for Engineering and Science" (I am using it because it says on the cover that it is an ideal preparation book for MCAT and GRE and so far it looks like) and the 3000 problems book(I don't think I'll have time to complete all the 3000 exercise, so instead I do the ones that are recommended at the beginning of the book by the author, good idea?). However, they don't deal with some of the advanced stuff like lagrangian, hamiltonian and also laboratory methods, electronics.
First of all, would you think that these two books would be enough for the core preparation of the other stuff that are covered. What I like with them, is that they are more concise and to the point than say traditional textbooks like Serway.
Secondly, which book do you think is the best for the Lagrangian, Hamiltonian formalism and the central forces business? Bearing mind that I need to aim for a top score and that I have a theoretical physics background.
