Hello all.

I am studying Thermal Physics from Schroeder's book. I really like this book, but the number of worked examples and solved problems is minimum. Could you please suggest me a complemetary book with worked examples and problems? The ideal book should be similar to Schroeder's, with the same contents and same approach to the subject.

Thank you so much.

That's going to be hard, because Schroeder's approach is quite unique.

You should take a look at books of solved problems, such as https://www.worldscientific.com/worldscibooks/10.1142/0883

I don't know if it is possible to meet all the criteria that you have given, but you might have a look at "Concepts in Thermal Physics" by Blundell and Bundell,
