#### Review: A Modern Approach to Quantum Mechanics

User Review - Ryan - GoodreadsGood introduction to QM using the first few chapters to discuss statistical concepts and matrix mathematics. This book is a great working guide to solving QM problems focused almost entirely on use of Dirac notation. Very comprehensive introduction to perturbation theory. Read full review
