What book are you reading to learn quantum theory? Strangely enough, I found my first quantum class to be the best I took when I got to grad school. It was an upper level undergraduate course since I hadn't taken it before and it was so well taught that the math and everything made sense. Of course, that doesn't mean I understand it, but I remember it as one of the few things that made sense at the time.

Once I get caught up in other things I'm going to start re-teaching myself electromagnetism.

At work, I have two books: "Why does E=mc^2?" by Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw and "Quantum Mechanics: 2nd Edition" by David K Ferry. I also do a lot of reading and research on Wikipedia and their references.

Do you mind doing a quick review, if you find them relevant to the Jedi path? Just a paragraph or two to help people know what level of knowledge they need. There are enough scientifically focused people that it could be beneficial.

I already did the "Why does E=mc^2?". Other one is very relevant to the Jedi path.
