Bridging Course Mathematics OMB+ for Students of Physics

The Mathematics Bridging Course (OMB+) prepares students to study mathematics, meteorology and physics. The OMB+ can be used to refresh the knowledge of mathematics from the school and to teach basic procedures for the application. In particular, there is also a call center, which is staffed with competent tutors and is available every day.

For physics students, the course is available free of charge via a special page of the German Physical Society.
