Brush up on your Physics and Chemistry with MITOPENCOURSEWARE! March 4, 2008

MIT OpenCourseWare

The beauty of diagnostic imaging is that one has to be a chemist, a physicist and a doctor at the same time to appreciate and understand all about this area of medicine. But as this science evolves one needs to store a lot of new information and some of the old ones tend to sink down a little bit, making them more difficult to access quickly. So, instead of picking up one of your old, dusty and probably out-of-date college books, why don’t you get a fresh start at these subjects with the help of Web 2.0 and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology?

About this siteCurrently number 7 on U.S.News’ list of America’s Best Colleges, MIT is committed to:

generating, disseminating, and preserving knowledge, and to working with others to bring this knowledge to bear on the world’s great challenges. MIT is dedicated to providing its students with an education that combines rigorous academic study and the excitement of discovery with the support and intellectual stimulation of a diverse campus community. We seek to develop in each member of the MIT community the ability and passion to work wisely, creatively, and effectively for the betterment of humankind.

Since 2002 you may take some of MIT’s courses and exams via the Internet! Lecture notes are available in pdf., while podcasts can be downloaded in rm., and mp3. formats. Older courses are updated, and new ones are added continuously, so check regularly or sign up to their RSS feed! Some are even translated to Spanish, Chinese and other languages. OCW materials may be downloaded and used freely, but it is stated on the site that these materials do not reflect the whole content of a course and that MIT does not guarantee a degree!

If you feel like taking a dive in MIT course materials, I recommend you try these:
