A recommended workbook for students preparing for examinations
in a secondyear course at colleges or universities. This book
is divided into three parts. The first part reviews the main theories
and techniques or ordinary differential equations. The second part
includes 5 midterm and 5 final practice examinations with solutions.
The third part consists of an Appendix of useful prerequisite techniques
from calculus.
Provides a quick and easy reference section to complement
exam solutions.
Provides fully workedout solutions to each examination.
Contains five practice midterm examinations and five practice
final examinations.
Reduces examanxiety by providing students with the opportunity
for a “dressrehearsal.”
Solutions get to the heart of the matter quickly, allowing
the student to learn the material more efficiently.
