Ok, for my differential equations class we are using a textbook called "An Introduction To Differential Equations and Their Applications" by Stanley Farlow. The book can be found here:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/048644595X/?tag=pfamazon01-20&tag=pfamazon01-20
and I must say that I 100% agree with the assessment provided by Marty G in the first review. Therefore, I feel that it would be wise to obtain a second textbook in order to supplement the first one (or perhaps replace it all together) so that I can more fully understand the material. I was hoping someone could provide some recommendtions. Topics to be covered in the class include: First Order ODE, Second Order ODE, Series Solutions, The Laplace Transformation, and System of DiffEq. The focus is one applications. Thank you. :)

Schaum's Outline of Differential Equations seemed to cover the topic nicely, from using standard solution techniques to covering the various numerical solution methods.

As with all titles in the Schaum's series, there are plenty of worked example problems and additional practice problems.
