So far I haven't found any thread dealing with the question of what
would be the best approach to string theory for a physics student
who wants to learn more about string theory, starting from zero.
Obviously, string theory is a "phenomenon" in popular sciences that
focuses the interest of the public tremendously and at the same time
is extremely difficult to handle on a purely scientific level. So I
think that the above question is of great importance.
As a student of physics I would love to know what I should focuse on
in my studies if I am interested in working on the string theory later
in my life. Is it easy to find out whether one really has the intel-
lectual capacity to be working successfully on this field?
Thanks in advance for any answers!
