I was wondering if anyone could suggest a good book on "beginner's" differential equations.

I am at an undergraduate level, it that helps you gage the content.

thanks in advance

For a first look at ordinary differential equations I like

Ordinary Differential Equations by Morris Tenenbaum and Harry Pollard

A good introduction.

Elementary Differential Equations by Earl D. Rainville

Very well written

Ordinary Differential Equations by Edward L. Ince

A bit harder, but filled with good things.

Ordinary Differential Equations in the Complex Domain by Einar Hille

For the complex domain perspective.

Ordinary Differential Equations by V.I. Arnold

An interesting perspective.
