    It's an excellent book, with a reasonably gentle introduction to QM.

    However, if you have not studied QM in much detail before, then you will likely find the math rather vague - you'll want to complement it with a more in-depth book.
    If there is much math involved in your course, then the easiest introduction to the math of QM that I've come across thus far, is Quantum Mechanics Demystified, by David McMahon.
