Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm self-studying various physics topics (as a hobby) and currently enjoying "A first course in general relativity" by Schutz. I also have the students manual for this book by Scott which provides the answers to a selection of the exercises in the book as well as some additional material.

For quite a few of the exercises Scott doesn't provide the solution though, or just a hint. This is not always enough to verify whether I have done things correctly or in some cases simply to check the way forward in case I'm not sure how to arrive at a correct answer.

While I'm a firm believer of making a serious attempt of figuring something yourself first, sometimes the solutions really help to understand things better. I have requested access to the solutions from the publisher of "A first course in general relativity" by Schutz but was denied on the basis that I'm not employed with a university. I even offered them to provide due diligence so that they can see I'm not a student or anything like that but that didn't help either. I understand it from their point of view but on the other hand, someone like myself investing good money in a book should be able to use the solutions as well.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no, but even when confident there can be a mistake sometimes:)
