    Re: Practice

    Just go down through these threads and see the problems that are asked and then try to answer them yourself. Then see how others answer them to see if you are right. You'll learn a lot that way. Of course, some of the answers may be wrong but usually by the end of a thread, the correct answer comes through. Just avoid those very long threads where someone isn't trying to learn but is trying to confuse everyone.

    Good point, it may be hard to find it in a bookstore though.

    I think this particular book is very comprehensive.
    I highly recommend it.

    I am of the opinion that one only really understands subject material when one is able to actually perform calculations.
