This Way Out is the best book for college-level self-study I have used. The book is in 3 parts, the last 2 Experimental Colleges and Foreign Study are too dated to be useful since it was published in 1973. The part that is particularly to the point here is that they also discuss the absolute essential for self-education - you must love to read, if you don't, then stay in college where they will force you to read.


Also, I would add, for technical fields you need to be interested enough in math to study it on your own as well.
