I am hoping to test out a Theory of Computation class for next semester and have bought the course's textbook, Introduction to the Theory of Computation by Michael Sipser to prepare. I was trying to go over some of the exercises at the end of the chapters to see if I firmly understand the topics but I have no way to determine if what I am doing is sound. Does anyone know where I can get solutions to this textbook?

Why would having some good solution to an exercise help you determine whether your (possibly different) solution is also sound? – Henning Makholm Nov 25 '12 at 17:37

The book has a number of answered questions at the end of each chapter (from edition 2 at least). Those should be sufficient for determining if your methods are sound.
