    is this proper book for first-year student?

    I think you probably want the book "3000 Solved Problems in Physics" instead of the Goldstein book.

    Classical Mechanics with Problems and Solutions by Morin is what you're looking for, trust me.

    Get it off gigapedia.com, there's a .pdf file somewhere.

    What level of CM are you at.
    Classical Dynamics: A Contemporary Approach-Jose/Saletan has many challenging problems in addition to having a good exposition.

    Also, if you can work through the holes of Mathematical Methods of Classical Mechanics, then you do not need problems.

    For a beginning undergrad, I second the recommendation of Morin.
