I am preparing for p-gre at very short notice.
i have brushed up as much as i could and am now about to start with the 4 question papers solved.
however one major problem remains - quantum mechanics. its to late to open any book now and work through the equations.
Does someone know of any writeup or notes sort of, that can be used to get the hand of P-gre level QM.
One thing is somewhat clear from what i have seen in the question papers - if you know which formula/concept to use you have a good chance to get 50% of the problems right. They dont test you for derivations or theoretical strength.
Anyway, a nutshell version of what i need to know for p-gre QM could greatly solve my problem. Any website, or pdf or anything that you guys could suggest??

I dont knwo if it sounded that way but i didnt mean that i was planing to mug a few equations and turn up for the test.
what i meant is that i dont have time to do any sort of indepth study that gives you deep insight sort of thing. so no landau lifshitz.
i meant to say that i want to study QM for the subject GRE - not basics of QM as a fresh student would and gain understanding 3 months down the line. i simply do not have that kind of time.
your elaboration as to the sort of questions - one on the tunneling, one on the potential levels in side an infinite well and one of harmonic oscillator etc - thats just what i wanted to know. So now i have my work cut out.
I do not want to read a "book" - i want to read last minute notes - not merely listing the equations, but also giving some explanations, but only just about enough for the test.
So yes does anyone know of any material on the internet that gives such a nutshell introduction/primer on QM.
Alternatively now that you wrote your reply, if i could just get a list of the 10 odd kinds/types of questions that they ask on QM in the exam, then i could study "top down" for them.
Thanks very much and i look forward to your and anyone else's reply, who may be interested to contribute.
