A number of students have asked me what additional books they could get to
help them in various courses. For the classes I teach I normally have
those on the web page that deals with that course. However some
requests have been for courses that I have not taught. So here are
all the helpful books I'm aware of (yes, most are Schaum's -- of course).

Naturally books are only good if you read them. To study from a problem
set book you should hide the answer and try to solve it before you look
at the answer. Don't spend too long trying to answer a question if
after 10 minutes or so you can't start it, then start looking at the answer.
Also, look at the answer step by step trying to complete the solution (without
looking at the other steps) after each step you peeked at. In short try to
solve as much of the problem as you can on your own. It is the only way you
will learn the material.

Because of the number of books listed here it is likely some of these links will
go stale. Just send me a note if they do. Thanks.
