**Reiny**, Friday, November 28, 2008 at 11:36amWhen I was still teaching senior highschool math in Ontario, I had a small library of reference and review texts for my students.

A popular one, and there are several in the series, is the Schaum Outline set of books (Google "Schaum outlines")

The books have lots of examples and lots of complete solutions.

This one was a well-used one
