    Excellent practical workbook for beginners

    I never understood diffEq when I took it in college, 40 years ago. With this book and a few online freebies, I now feel comfortable with the idea, and the usual 'tricks' for the beginning solutions. Highly recommended if your confidence is low, and your background perhaps a bit shaky.
