This book was our set book for Quantum mechanics. Although the descriptions were good and the calculations were admittedly useful the main point against it was that a lot of the topic was relegated to the questions. But you were left entirely on your own at this point as there were no solutions to the questions (these were supplied in a separate book for academic staff only). With the result that if you couldn't answer the question you were left with a gaping hole in your knowledge and probably couldn't progress any further unless you had a fully supporting lecturer who had a lot of time for their students.

In the end I had to forget this book and look elsewhere. I tried many books with little luck until it was virtually too late, when I found the book by Zettili (ISBN 0471489441) - a brilliant book that should have been the set text.
