Our chemistry book is a good text book. It explains things well and in depth. The problem I have with it, however, is the exercise problems. Enough of the answers in the back of the book are wrong that it causes confusion with the proper way to solve certain problems (professor agrees and has sent an email to the publisher to see if a revised answer list is going to be made accessible). The book was probably rushed through production...but whatever the problem was, I need a reliable set of exercises with correct answers to check my work.

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good book of college-level general chemistry problem sets?

You might check out Schaum's outline of general chemistry, or 3,000 solved problems in chemistry, also from Schaum's, or REA's Chemistry Problem Solver. I have not used any of them myself, so I can't vouch for complete accuracy, but I've heard good things about them and they are all relatively inexpensive. Preview some pages and check out the reviews on Amazon.

Thank you very much for those suggestions. I'll research those books and hopefully buy one or two.
