Self-studying QM after course

Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello there,

So I just finished a course on Qm with Griffiths but the teacher was not the best, to say the least. I disliked the book too and its kind of childish or funny way of presenting stuff.

During the summer break I want to go over QM again but with a better book and by myself. I loved the area of physics and want to know more deeply its ideas and concepts.

Should I start with Landau's non-relativistic QM? I used one of their books as a reference for fluid dynamic before and I thought that the presentation was clear and helpful.

Is this a great idea?

Since you are saying that the teacher was not good, you can follow a video lecture course. I prefer Prof. Balakrishnan's Quantum Mechanics. The lectures are just fantastic. You'll also find the lectures in the Media gallery under category Quantum.

After that, you may do the course Relativistic QM by Prof. Patel.

These lectures are very good, and I'm myself learning from them.

Since you liked Landau's fluids, you will probably like Landau's QM as well.
