PGRE as an engineer.

Postby harini08 » Wed Jun 19, 2013 2:27 am


I am an engineer planning to pursue my masters in Applied Physics. As an engineering graduate, I have very little physics background ( only high school physics and two semesters in UG).
I am a bit confused with the plethora of books mentioned in he forum. After going through a number of posts i decided on a few books:

1. Resnick halliday Walker
2. Tipler
3. Griffiths (electrodynamics and QM)
4. Practice books.

Would these be sufficient for a novice like me ?

I am planning to take the exam in november'13.

P.S. i went through a number of posts before posting so kindly excuse if this is repetitive! :)

Yes, those should suffice to prepare well for PGRE. Also, I think the exams this year are in September and October instead of October and November.

I would recommend going over all the old tests in depth. Imo most of the practice books out there are pretty bad.
You can find copies of the old tests online and the solutions on this website
