If Sakurai's math is too difficult to you, try McMahon https://www.amazon.com/dp/0071765638/?tag=pfamazon01-20 where every computational step is explained explicitly. (But it doesn't follow Sakurai.)

Thank You!

What specifically don't you understand? Can you post an example?

What level of mathematics can you handle? In particular, how well do you understand linear algebra (without the Dirac notation)?

How much QM do you already know? I think that Sakurai is better for a second course in QM. For example, when he derives the Schrodinger equation he presents it as something you should already be familiar with. Not as something you are seeing for the first time.

Alexander Maloney's lectures on QM using Sakurai

He also has other excellent courses on his web page, I really liked his GR lectures, they were so superb

Is this a good QM book? "Modern Quantum Mechanics", 3rd Edition, by J. J. Sakurai and Jim Napolitano
