Tunneling through the Quantum Chemistry course...
« on: April 18, 2013, 04:57:24 PM »
Hey guys,
I saw different opinions on this forum, some people struggle with their physical chemistry courses, some with the organics, some can't identify symmetry operations to save their lives and I understand it all those are not easy, but the struggle I had with all the above does not compare with the struggle I'm having with our Quantum Mechanics/Chemistry course...It doesn't help that the professor is a very young guy that just got appointed to teach and wants to show that he's "The Man"...

I understand the basic mathematical syntax, I can't even point out the exact problem I'm having, it's just that I'm trying to solve our home assignments and I can't understand a thing.

What would be a good book to get on the subjects? One that covers all the basics and is accessible.

Thanks in advance,
Mark.

Wrong forum I think.  There is a stickied thread dealing with p-chem textbooks in the p-chem forum.  Atkins or McQuarrie are the most typical choices.
