I am studying my first -and only, undergrad speaking- Quantum Mechanics course this term in a Nuclear Engineering Department.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What would be your advice for some one who is first studying quantum mechanics?

I am asking about any advice that would come to your mind when you read the question: how to study, how to think, things I should note that may be intuitively hard to comprehend, expected problems..etc.

Note: Our syllabus started directly by a very short reminder of black body radiation, photoelectric effect & Compton scattering, then we headed to the postulates of the Quantum Theory, and then Schrodinger Equation and solving an infinite well problem! (all that in the first three lectures), then we are expected to do more application on Schrodinger's Equation, and then we will spend some time on Angular Momentum and eventually the Scattering theory.
