This question already has an answer here:
I would love to learn quantum physics and am extremely keen on it. Lets get to points.
I was extremely weak at math and physics while I was in school, but I guess it's just the way things were taught. I have read some theoretical (the literal word) on quantum physics and am really keen to do the math involved. I love reading books and that's how I've spent most of my life. It would be the greatest thing ever if you geniuses could recommend a step by step guide (books only) to becoming a quantum physicist.
I intend to learn everything involved and/or required. It would really help me and many other physics enthusiasts who currently see no other option than the conventional university education route. I am fully and completely prepared for this journey.
