Sounds like you know quite a bit about this field. Would you mind if I PM you for a bit of a reading list?
Also, I was thinking I would probably use KhanAcademy pretty extensively to catch up on the basic maths/physics I missed and then trying to find as much supplementary material free from the various Open Course Ware sites that academic institutions have peppered the internet with.
The timescale I'm aiming at is probably six months to a year with a lot of extra stuff, which is why I went with "study group" instead of "book club". Its not just a read through and discussion (at least for me, the others can give as much or as little time/effort as they want to).
Do you think this sounds sufficient to get a sense of what is going on in each of the subjects? I'm not looking to get a BSc in Physics, just trying to get a proper look in on Physics and hopefully pick up some of the maths in the process.
