Well any qm textbook would demobstrate this fact basically.

Anyway qm is also known as matrix mechanics for a reason. The question is basically asking when does the order of observations not matter i.e. when is AB\psi=BA\psi for ALL \psi?

Sure.

In fact you don't even need a quantum mechanics text. All you need is a linear algebra text.
