Trying to learn QM for GRE

Post by gooner » Fri Mar 16, 2007 10:48 pm

I'm using Griffiths to try to learn enough QM to handle the GRE. Anyone have any suggestions which chapters I should focus on?

know chapters 1-5 inside and out, I don't think there's much from the other chapters. maybe some basic perturbation theory.

i remember seeing a pictorial question directly pertaining to the WKB approximation, but that's one question out of many...i agree, Ch's 1-5 covers most of it

every so often, a time independent perturbation theory problem pops up. they're simple enough.

the quantum mechanics in the physics gre is really, really basic.
