Quantum Mechanics Textbook Suggestion

  1. Jul 18, 2011 #1
    I'm currently on the searching for a Quantum Mechanics textbook. Does anybody have suggestions for me? Below is a brief description of myself to explain my education level:

    I am a thrid year mechanical engineering major. I'm about to complete Physics for Scientists and Engineers: A Strategic Approach by Randall D. Knight. I have only studied the introductory topics of one dimensional quantum mechanics and some atomic structure concepts. Additionally, I have a good grasp on special relativity. My math experience includes single variable calculus, multivariable calculus, linear algebra, and introductory differential equations.

    I am hoping to find a textbook that is very comphrensive, a little above my skill level, and well written.

    Thanks for your help.

    The OP has only taken, so I gather, a calculus based general physics course. I don't know if it's a good idea to jump straight into a proper QM book. But who knows. You can borrow the books from the library and see if they are what you want first.
