Advice on a "great" self study book. PDE Hello, for the first time this summer i wont be taking ( at least i hope so) any classes. That will give me a lot of free time to do as i please. i will be a senior in college and i still have to take pde's. The prof that teaches the course, at least from what i hear, is a maniac, he makes the class impossible and the highest grade he gives out is a C. i definitely do not want a C, but also would like to learn the material. Im in need of a great self study book. A book that goes thru everything in detailed steps. Some previous books that i thought were good self study books were div grad curl ( i hope that the correct order), apps of quantum mechanics by Zettili, calculus an intuitive approach by Morris Kline. Thank you for any input. Also i would like to note that i have already purchased the shaums outline on Fourier analysis and pde's, they are good, but not great for self study.
