I'm going into my second year of applied math and engineering. My problem is that my degree requirements do not allow me to take any courses on quantum mechanics. Therefore, I am thinking about teaching myself from a textbook or something of that sort.

I was wondering if someone could give some input on what resources I should use and how I should go about this.

Thanks

Assuming you have the math background, I've found Gasiorowicz to bequite good.

'Quantum mechanics' by Alastair I. M. Rae is good. He uses physical examples to introduce the subject, instead of just stating the maths at the start.

Edit: this is one of the books I was recommended for my 3-year undergraduate physics degree, so its good for beginners.
