To students who are interested in learning enough to become practicing theoretical chemists, I suggest they pursue the references and web links offered on this site, and, equally importantly, enroll in collegelevel mathematics classes including at least calculus, differential equations (including partial differential equations), and linear algebra. The more mathematics, physics, and chemistry one can take in undergraduate school, the better. Also, it helps greatly to have experience using computers and writing programs in Fortran or in C.
