I don't know of any problems online, but a good inexpensive source of solved problems and unsolved problems with answers is Schaum's Outlines. For your specific course, there are two:

*Differential Equations

*Modern Introductory Differential Equations

Both are great, especially the latter. You might also find the following Schaum's outlines helpful:

*Laplace Transforms

*Fourier Analysis with Applications to Boundary Value Problems

The first one is especially good, and highly relevant to a first course in ODE's.

So what do you think about those REA solution guides? I have one for physics, it is awesome. Over 1100 pages chock full of worked problems, from general non-calculus based all the way to wicked DFQ type problems and modern physics!

Tom, old soul, you could start a course on differential equations if you want.

No, these are 100+ pages and cost about $15 a pop.Originally posted by Will

Thanks. I have heard about them, I will have take a closer look. The ones you are talking about are those laminated sheets, with just a few pages, right?

They're big, heavy, and expensive. I have not reviewed the content, because they are usually on the rack right next to the Schaum's.So what do you think about those REA solution guides?

For the last time, 30 is not old, goddammit!Originally posted by schwarzchildradius

Tom, old soul,

The real issue is time. I wanted to start a bunch of summer courses, but it doesn't look like I can. At the time I posted that poll, I had just had a good job interview, and it looked like I was in there, but I haven't heard back from them. So, I'm still stuck at my crappy temp job, working a ton of OT to pay the bills.you could start a course on differential equations if you want.

Maybe next summer....
