I am not interested in it really, and plan on going to grad school for AMO theory/experiment. I realize that there are a lot of things in astrophysics that uses things from every subfield of physics and in that way it's a good way to learn a bunch of physics. But frankly I'm taking topology and writing my thesis and I'm not sure if I care enough to do the Problem sets. The textbook we use is Astrophysics in a Nutshell by Dan Maoz...Do you think taking it would have any appreciable impact on what adcoms think of my transcript?
. We used that for an astro class I took at my school. It's a crappy book, really crappy. My advice: find another class.elliott34 wrote:The textbook we use is Astrophysics in a Nutshell by Dan Maoz
