I'm looking for help teaching myself QM. I am taking a a third year course in my degree in QM but I can't follow the lecturers notes/teaching style. The topics we will be covering are;

Introduction: experimental facts that led to the development of quantum theory
Waves and particles: the basic concepts of quantum mechanic
Fundamentals and formalism of quantum mechanics
The simple harmonic oscillator
Angular momentum in QM

If anybody could suggest a QM book that has plenty of examples and is helpful with the above topics I would be very grateful! (Thanks in advance)

What you listed there is standard intro QM. Go to the library and look into the books there until you find a style that suits you.

I personally like Cohen-Tannoudji's books.

Quantum Mechanics: Concepts and Applications by Zettili has a lot of worked out examples.
