I am about to get my undergraduate degree in (pure) mathematics, but I feel like I'm ill prepared to go through a graduate program. This is why I'm looking for texts like this one in other fields (algebra, analysis and topology.)

I've already looked at "Berkeley problems in mathematics", and I found it pretty tough.

Sorry if this question is too broad, or the site is not really for these kinds of questions (I've seen some in related topics, though).

Edit: I don't know how to make this question community wiki. Do you still have that feature?

This one, titled Real Analysis for graduate students (don't be scared by the title, it's not a graduate level textbook!), is a good book full exercises that I discovered surfing randomly on amazon. As you can see the index is amazing: measure theory, lebesgue integration, topology, probability, harmonic functions, distributions, basic functional analysis and so on. The level, as I was saying, is not extremely high, so it could be more enjoyable that the berkeley one. Just a needless remark: the author included so many things that you can't expect that everything is detailed as it would be in a course on that subject, but it is a good starting point (and it is free :D).

I hope you'll find it interesting :D

I would suggest

I am actually solving them now and i feel that they are useful.

They have solutions to all problems :P

Good Luck!
