A recommended workbook for students preparing for examinations
in a second-year 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
Provides a quick and easy reference section to complement
Provides fully worked-out solutions to each examination.
Contains five practice midterm examinations and five practice
Reduces exam-anxiety by providing students with the opportunity
for a dress-rehearsal.
Solutions get to the heart of the matter quickly, allowing
the student to learn the material more efficiently.
