You need calculus, differential equations, statistics and linear algebra to understand an average undergraduate level quantum mechanics course.
I would say partial differential equations and fourier analysis as well.

A solutions manual won't hurt you if you use it the right way, as in only as a last resort once you have already checked your work for yourself. Even if you use it to work through example problems along with it, I don't think it will hurt, provided that you practice plenty of problems completely on your own, and practice checking and deciding for yourself that your solution is correct as well.

I always considered solutions manuals beneath my dignity, personally. If I am really hopelessly stuck on a problem, then I might want a hint, but that's it.

You should train yourself in linear algebra ,fourier transforms and partial differential equations well .they are very important
