Experimental Particle Physics
This  webpage  is

Scope: methods and tools used in the experimental particle and nuclear physics
including: kinematics; particle
interactions with matter; Monte-Carlo methods, simulation
and data management tools, basics of
statistics, particle
detectors, electronics, and more.

P626 is NOT a prerequisite for P627.
