Useful Handouts

Additional Resources

Suggested HW from Vollhardt and Schore, 8th Ed.

These handouts contain a subset of end-of-chapter problems from the 8th edition (same problems as in the 6th and 7th editions, but some are numbered differently - see this HW List for the conversion between editions). They (mostly) match the suggested HW problems from Nasiri and Lievens, but I tried to pick no more than 10 from each chapter. You will need the solutions manual to check your answers, a used copy of whichever edition you'd like (6th, 7th or 8th) will be just fine.
