I am currently a Junior in college studying Physics. I am planning on going to Graduate School, which obviously requires the GREs. I have looked up that the physics GRE is 12% Quantum Mechanics (as per this source https://www.ets.org/gre/subject/about/content/physics). However, how my University is set up, I will not be able to take Quantum Mechanics 1 in time. That is, I will be about half way done the semester of Quantum Mechanics when I have to take the Physics GRE.

I was planning on trying to teach myself some of it (Hopefully enough to do well on the GRE). I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions for textbooks. I am looking for a textbook that will aide in my personal studies of Quantum Mechanics to prepare for the GRE. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

As I said, I am a junior in college, so I should be okay with the math (All calculus courses, ordinary differential equations, linear algebra, etc.). I have also taken Classical Mechanics 1 (Lagrangians, Hamiltonians, etc.) and Electricity and Magnetism 1.

Any suggestions on textbooks would be much appreciated.
