Can anyone suggest a collection of (solved) exercises in topology? Undergrad level, as a companion to Dugundji's Topology (although excellent it doesn't provide the solutions to the problems).

    $\begingroup$ Introduction to Topology by Gamelin and Greene contains about 40 pages of solutions to selected exercises. $\endgroup$ Mar 17, 2011 at 16:58
  • $\begingroup$ +1, I am quite interested in this as well! $\endgroup$

"Fundamentals of General Topology: Problems and Exercises" by A. V. Arkhangel'skii; V.I. Ponomarev is a fun book, though it might be hard to find and the level might be higher than you'd like.

  • $\begingroup$ great book! Nice intro to the Russian school of general topology, and as such more set-theoretical in nature than the more (IMHO) geometric Dugundji approach. They consider different types of problems. $\endgroup$ Mar 17, 2011 at 18:49

I'd recommend "Elementary Topology Problem Textbook" by Viro, Ivanov, Netsvetaev, Kharlamov.
