Hi, I'm wondering if anyone has recommendations for textbooks which cover the basics of ODEs. I'm looking for books which cover first and second order ODEs and related topics.

Things are nicely done (the level of exposure is not too difficult) in I.V.Smirnov "Higher Mathematics",VOL I and you may also check volume II.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I'll look into them.
 
Differential Equations by Blanchard, Devaney and Hall is a really popular one.

I highly recommend, in addition to a decent textbook, Rea's differential equations problem solver.

There's also the Tenenbaum and Pollard book published by Dover. Relatively cheap.
