Looking for supplementary physics book!

Hi all, first post here. I ran into this site after googling for some help with Epsilon-Delta proofs for my calculus course. I like what I see here! Anyway, on to my question:

I'm currently enrolled in a first-semester General Physics course that is algebra based, no calculus (though I am taking a first-semester calculus course as well). What I'm looking for is a book with lots of practice problems! My textbook (College Physics by Wilson/Buffa) has a good amount of practice problems, but once I've done with those I always want more to do - practice makes perfect, right? I'm currently doing the chapter on kinematics, and as such I want lots of kinematic problems of all types and flavors, but my text only has so much. So I'm looking for a book with a large amount of problems (ALGEBRA based) for all the different sub-topics that one would run into in a general physics course.

If anyone has any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance.

If you want a book on specific topics, than find a Schaum on topic you are interested in. (I can't imagine a topic not coverd in Schaum)
My recomendation on general physics, collection of briliant problems... Irodov - Problems in general physics. You'll find all kinds of problems there, problems that make you think.
