*practical*calculations from these lectures: he's used the partition function to derive all sorts of fun expressions, and to analyse the ideal gas and a weakly interacting gas.

However, there are no problem sets associated with these lectures. After watching Susskind analyse these systems so easily, I'd like to try my hand at it myself :) So I'm asking for any references to exercises in statistical mechanics, that aren't too hard but are interesting. Books with particularly good exercises would be great too.

Thanks
