Courses Example Books For College Level Courses

  1. May 22, 2012 #1
    Has anyone heard of some sort of book series that is meant to supplement college courses with boatloads of examples and solutions? I've always thought it would be helpful if someone were to publish a big set of these. I've been searching for just a book full of challenging examples and step by step solutions, for calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, lagrangian/hamiltonian mechanics, E&M, optics, quantum, basically a full undergrad course set for physics.

    If anyone has any suggestions that would be great. I've found that just making an A in a class doesn't quite get me to the level of understanding I'd like to have. Trying to get to Tony Stark level, and I've found the best way to do that is to work examples until my hand blisters.

    -sorry if the grammar is unsatisfactory, writing this on a shaky bus

    Thanks all
