This study guide is intended for students
who are working through the Third Edition of our textbook
(co-authored with William D. Blair).
The guide is focused on solved problems,
and covers Chapters One through Six.`
My goal throughout is to help students learn how to do proofs,
as well as computations.
The study guide now contains well over 500 problems,
and more than half have detailed solutions,
while about a quarter have either an answer or a hint.
That number of problems can be quite overwhelming,
so if you don't have enough time to try all of the solved problems,
you can at least read the solutions.
The file is in pdf format, suitable for viewing with Adobe Acrobat Reader. It can also be downloaded and printed, with only minor restrictions (see page ii of the study guide).
Please send me email if you find typos or mathematical mistakes.
