Anyone know any decent classical mechanics and/or thermo/statistical mechanics books that have many problems along with solutions? I hate that the books I do have, which have no solutions partically (just talking about the stat of solutions and not the hateing of text here). It's not reasonable to go to professors or come here with every problem I have you know? I know that doing problems is the way to learn, but doing a hundred problems and not knowing whether they are right or wrong doesn't help me at all. Something else that may help is solutions manuals if anyone knows where I can obtain those. It's just kind of sad the way the education sysytem works. Do the people making these books think that every student taking an upper level physics course is just going to copy all the answers or something? Aren't most people taking these sorts of courses doing it to learn? So why would they not put solutions in then? I found a quantum mechanics book by a guy named Zettlil and it seems awesome so far and so far as I can tell. No sacrifice for text (as far as I know) to put in solutions to his problems. Why is it so rare to find a text book and problem/solution book all rolled up into one? Sorry for the blabbering. Yeah so if anyone knows good books with solutions or where I can find solutions manuals that would be awesome, thanks.
