Designed for use in tandem with theHandbook of Physics, this volume is nonetheless self–contained and can without difficult be used on its own. The chapters of the Handbook are based on lectures delivered annually by Professor Poole in a course to prepare students for their Ph.D. qualifying examination in the physics department at the University of South Carolina. The present book contains 120 selected problems (and answers) that appeared in these examinations, and each one refers to the chapter in theHandbook that discusses the background for it.

The book covers all the relevant subject, which appear on typical Physics Department qualifying examinations, including:

  • Atomic and General Physics
  • Condensed Matter Physics
  • Classical Mechanics
  • Electricity and Magnetism
  • Elementary Particles Physics
  • Nuclear Physics
  • Optics and Light
  • Quantum Mechanics
  • Relativity and Astrophysics
  • Thermo and Statistics Mechanics

This book provides and excellent self–study approach to prepare physics Ph.D. candidates for their qualifying examinations.
