Introductory Differential Equations Textbook

  1. Oct 6, 2014 #1
    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/Introduction-Differential-Equations-Applications-Mathematics/dp/048644595X
    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. :)
