In summary, when choosing between A. Phillips' and D. Griffiths' Introduction to Quantum Mechanics books, it seems that Griffiths' book is the preferred option. While there is little information on Phillips' book, Griffiths' book is highly rated and well-explained, making it a strong textbook for those new to quantum mechanics. Additionally, some individuals have stated that they are using both Griffiths' E&M and QM books and have found them to be clear and not confusing.

I have this two books

Introduction to Quantum Mechanics - A. Phillips
Introduction to Quantum Mechanics - D. Griffiths

My question is which of this two books to read,I need for exam,but in my country (better to say my college) we don't have book on our language,that is made exactly for my course, so we are learning on class or from some scripts that our professor made and they are so confusing.Also he told us to read Quantum Mechanics - Peebles, P.J.E. but I don't like way of narration in this book.

I don't know Philips' books, but as far as I can tell, Griffith's book is a strong textbook if it is your first quantum mechanics class. The important concepts are made clear and are very well explained. And you have a lot of examples in it.

Philips' book doesn't seem to be very well rated on amazon.

I agree. I have both. I never used them in school--I'm too old!--but Griffiths is the one you want.

I am using Griffiths, so I cannot comment on Phillips, but so far Griffiths has been a good text (I am using both E&M and QM Griffiths). Isn't confusing or anything, so even if Phillips is better, Griffiths is still not a bad choice.
