Recommended intro to differential equations textbook

  1. Jan 16, 2008 #1
    Does anyone have a recommendation for a good intro to differential equations? The book I'm using now (Guterman & Nitecki) is pretty bad. I'm looking for lots of examples, practice problems, and hopefully answers. Thanks!

    From Dover Books on Mathematics:

    Ordinary Differential Equations: Tenenbaum & Pollard

    http://www.amazon.com/Ordinary-Differential-Equations-Morris-Tenenbaum/dp/0486649407/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1257855710&sr=8-1-spell [Broken]

    Partial Differential Equations for Scientists and Engineers : S. Farlow

    http://www.amazon.com/Differential-Equations-Scientists-Engineers-Mathematics/dp/048667620X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1257855755&sr=1-1 [Broken]

    Excellent quality books, and they only cost ~28 USD for both.
