## Main Question or Discussion Point

I was wondering what the equivalent of "Halliday and Resnick" was for Quantum Mechanics. Truthfully, I don't have much experience with quantum mechanics, apart from

- Construction of the Schrodinger Equation (in one dimension, but extending to 3 shouldn't be that difficult... just change the double partial diff. with respect to x to a laplacian, etc.)

- Somewhat okay-ish understanding of how to solve the Schrodinger Equation in a finite/infinite square well situation

Particularly, how good is the following book: Introduction to Quantum Mechanics 2nd Edition (Griffiths)

I am going to be a freshman this fall of 2008 in college, and was wondering how good this book was for QM.
