I made an effort to use this text for undergraduate pchem... our professor was trying it out (Berkeley.) I abandoned the book for lack of explanation and depth, it more read as a book of equations, but sometimes the derivations were not even clear.
I wish I could go into further detail; alas I sold it (for way less, the binding was horrific and began to fall apart within mere weeks!) Suffice it to say, IMO you should save your money!
fwiw, I recommend the Atkins & Friedman text Molecular Quantum Mechanics along with Griffith's Quantum Mechanics. Much more helpful books that allowed me to get an above average grade in the class.
