# Studentâ€™s Solutions Guide

Since the textbook's initial publication, many requested the distribution of solutions to the problems in the textbook. We published the studentâ€™s solutions guide which includes guided solutions to the odd-numbered end-of-chapter problems.

This guide is available on Amazon in both print and kindle format:
