Take a look at the Physics GRE topics tested and make sure you take a free online class in those topics. Usually, this means classes in:
Two freshman/first year physics courses that cover basic things like classical mechanics, waves, optics, etc. (Usually this is taught as a year long course at most universities)
A basic physics laboratory course, particularly for things like error analysis
Quantum Mechanics (one course, but not the "modern physics" course)
Electromagnetism (one course beyond freshman/first year level)
Special Relativity (usually taught as part of "modern physics" course)
I think the minimum knowledge would be these 7 courses, normally taught within the first 3 years of a physics degree. Finding online or self-teaching these courses would help you a lot.
