Classical
Mechanics 
Undergraduate 
Classical Mechanics, Kibble and
Berkshire, 5th ed. Classical Dynamics of Particles and Systems, Thornton and Marion, 5th ed. 
Brian Raue Lei Guo 
Essentially the entire
book is fair game: Newtonian mechanics,
oscillations,Lagrangians, Hamiltonians, centralforce
motion, collisions, dynamics of rigid bodies,
vibrations, waves. See the course syllabi: Mechanics
I, Mechanics

Electricity
and Magnetism 
Undergraduate  Electromagnetism,
Pollack & Stump, 2nd ed., Introduction to Electrodynamics, Griffiths, 3rd ed. 
Robert Laird 
See the course syllabi: E&M
I, E&M II 
Graduate  Classical
Theory of Fields Vol. 2., Landau & Lifshitz,
4th ed. Electrodynamics of Continuous Media, Landau, 2nd ed. Classical Electrodynamics, Jackson, 3rd ed. 
Rajamani Narayanan 
E&M 1 Chapters 19
from Classical Theory of Fields. E&M 2 Chapters 16, 9, 10, 12 from Electrodynamics... While anything covered in the courses may be on the exam, consider that many Jacksonlevel problems are too hard to be solved in the time allotted. 

Thermodynamics
and
Statistical Physics 
Undergraduate  An
Introduction to Thermal Physics, Schroeder. 
Oren Maxwell 
See the course syllabi: Thermodynamnics 
Graduate  Fundamentals of
Statistical and Thermal Physics, Reif.

Generally not much from
this course.
Perhaps
something on the equipartition theorem (chapter 7).

Lei Guo, Richard Bone 
Time
dilation and length contraction, Lorentz
transfromations, significant emphasis on fourvectors
and relativistic kinematics. Modern I website. 
Graduate  Classical Mechanics,
Goldstein, Poole, and Safko, 3rd ed., chapter 7.
