Alternatives to Sakurai

  • #1

Main Question or Discussion Point

The assigned textbook for my quantum mechanics class is Sakurai, but I find it too concise and struggle to solve any of the problems. I feel like I understood very little so far because of it and am looking for some alternatives/supplements. Currently I'm torn between Townsend, Ballentine, and Shankar. Which one would you recommend?

Personal preferences are very, well, personal. Why don't you go to your university library and sit down with each for 20 minutes? You'll find which speak to you.
