Hello.

I am planning to appear for the subject GRE exam for Mathematics this year. I needed some suggestions for books. I know there is Cracking The GRE by Princeton Review. But I guess the book is for a review . I was looking for books other than it for problem solving practice. I intend to try to solve as many problems as possible from recommended texts. But there are a few subjects about which I am unsure where to study from.

For instance I am studying Calculus from Apostol , and somewhat from Spivak. I guess, problems given in these books are good. What do you reckon ?

Similarly I plan to study Linear Algebra from Friedberg ,Algebra from Pinter , (and if time permits from Artin).

But I am confused with respect to Calculus -2 , i.e Multivariable Calculus , I found Apostol Volume 2 a lot more tough for the purpose of learning Multivariable Calculus. Which book should I use for the same ?

Similarly I am a bit clueless about Complex Analysis , and Probability ? Can you suggest books for these topics.

By the way , how is Munkres for Topology ? Is it too tough for problem solving ?

Basically I am looking for books that cover theory well enough but not overkill like Calculus -2 by Apostol. And the books should have exercises as well.

Thanks. Great Forum. Unique in it's own right.

Cheers. (New to the forum so bear with my basic queries )
