i am just going to give my exams after two months. After that i will be free for 23 months, before i join any other institute.
I have done classical physics in detail in past two years.(not of engineering level, as i still hav to join a college) i like physics very much. Quantum world looks fascinating to me. I want to know can i understand quantum physics own my own. If yes please suggest me some book with the ABC of quantum physics . Or should i do some other thing. Please help

Griffiths book is a common starting point for many undergraduate students:
http://www.amazon.com/IntroductionQ...8221716&sr=82 I haven't used the book before, but it seems to me that its purpose is a very gentle n soft introduction so that the reader can move to more detailed books. One of my favorite books is: http://www.amazon.com/QuantumMechan...8221920&sr=81 Bare in mind that you are generally expected to be familiar with the basic matrix algebra and multivariable calculus (differential & integral equations would be an advantage), but typically the books are selfcontained. More advanced topics make more use of concepts from classical mechanics (no, I don't mean Newton's mechanics, but rather Lagrange & Hamilton formulations). Hint: formulation = version
