I used this textbook for Introduction to Quantum Mechanics I and Introduction to Quantum Mechanics II, which I took as a physics major during my undergraduate career. I referenced this text decades later to supplement the extremely basic quantum mechanics being referenced by an online chemistry course.

According to the title the book is intended to be an introduction to quantum mechanics, but in fact it introduces the reader to wave mechanics. This is the story with many other introductory books on the subject, and as an introduction to wave mechanics this book is not that bad, although not excellent.

But wave mechanics is not the whole story: the wave function formalism is not the most fundamental one and besides it is not general. There are a lot of quantum systems the state of which can not be described by any kind of function. The educational tradition is that usually students are introduced to wave mechanics first, and then, if necessary, to more general and fundamental state vector formalism of quantum mechanics.

From my experience I even doubt that introducing quantum mechanics in such a way, i.e. in form of wave mechanics, is the best way to teach the subject, but in case if someone wants to continue his way into quantum mechanics after this or any other introductory book on wave mechanics, I could recommend Lectures on Quantum Theory Mathematical and Structural Foundations by C. J. Isham.

This book is so incredibly easy to read it's hard to believe it's a full-fledged quantum mechanics textbook with equations and everything. A lot of people whine about this book which essentially boils down to technical nitpicking. It's the most accessible way to really do Q.M. out there.
