    Hello!

    I'm looking for a book (or several books, each in a different area) that contains only (or just many) exercises, preferably with solutions (not necessarily detailed). I'm mostly interested in linear algebra, group theory and calculus, although suggestions regarding other areas will also be helpful.

    I have never seen a book in general circulation like that.

    I think your best bet might br a solutions manual for a standard text book. Sometimes such things exist and are available fromthe publisher, but quite often you need to be teaching a class to obtain one. You might talk to someone at a local college or university and see if they might have one available.

    What is your application for such a book ?

    I'm a mathematics student and I want to practice more than my regular textbooks allow (due to not-so-many exercises they contain).
