I have studied basic thermodynamics (minus the engineering nuances) but very little of statmech so I am not quite as confident with it as I am with say QM, EM, CM, modern physics, etc.
Comments, suggestions, advice would be appreciated.

So I was just trying to make up in some small measure for not having taken a course yet. I did see the sample booklet they sent me..it has questions on elementary thermodynamics (first law, expansions, etc.) But I was wondering if the level can be much higher than Resnick and Halliday.
