    I wasn't quite sure where to post this, so mods if this isn't the right spot feel free to move it where you please.

    So to provide a bit of background: I am a 16 year old student from New Hampshire about to enter my senior year of high school. When I was a little kid I was absolutely obsessed about two things: the sciences (specifically chemistry), and mathematics. Time went on and I made substantial progress until I began really slowing down and reaching a dead end by my freshman year in high school for whatever reason. By around the 3rd quarter of my junior year, I began really discovering my love for the sciences again, specifically physics, and mathematics. While I will probably not go to a top school despite my incredible amount of new found determination and motivation (my GPA is only about 3.5 and I only got a 2230 on the SAT I), I don't want that to stop me from learning as much as I can.

    I'm going to be taking a lot of classes at a community college next year under the recommendation of my academic advisor, and out of excitement am starting a self-study program to keep me occupied over the summer and to enrich my experience next year. I'm keeping my progress mapped out in a blog, including a plan (the Books, Books, and More Books post is the most relevant to this) for what I intend to study. I would like someone, preferably an educator or someone who has experience with physics and mathematical programs to look over my plan and give me any tips to improve the plan or change it. I would like to approach this the best way possible so that I can cover everything the right way from square one.

    The blog link is in my profile under contact info, as I can't post links yet.

    Many thanks in advance

    Why not just go and talk to a guidance counslor at the college you attend? They can be of the best help for what you need and what what to take.
