I have a strong interest in maths, and I feel that advanced physics is cool too (although I've only studied classical mechanics at high school, which is kind of boring). So I'm not sure about which path follow for further studies at university: I think that maths can become very abstract, and therefore be somewhat less interesting than experimental (or even theorical) physics; on the other hand, I've no basis whatsoever to judge if I will like university physics.
So I have two questions:
Do you feel that you miss something doing mathematics: that is, don't you want to do something more connected to the real word and to practical experiments? If not, why is even abstract math interesting to you?
Are there any books/websites/handouts which can help me grasp the beauty of physics (NB I'm not looking for pop-science on the universe or something, but for interesting books about real university physics)?
Thank you. I hope this question is not too broad or opinion based (at least, if it is, please don't close it soon, so that I can get some answers).
