As in the sixth edition, end-of-chapter problems are divided into two groups: ``Questions and Problems'' and ``Assignment Questions''. Solutions to the Questions and Problems are in Options, Futures, and Other Derivatives 7e: Solutions Manual which is published by Pearson and can be purchased by students.

This book is extremely knowledgable, in fact my professor teaches every lesson out of it. It is very detailed and as helpful as it gets for a topic this detailed and hard. It has plenty of practice problems with a solutions book that can be bought on Amazon or found online if you search hard enough. I decided to rent this book as it is pretty costly if you decide to buy it, some $300..
One cannot fully understand the quantitative aspects of risk management without having this book in your reference library. It's thorough, easy to read and has all the necessary mathematics for reproduce the risk measures, pricing and valuation for most exchange traded securities out there. I fails only in the introduction to cover the requisite history of risk management but that's not so important for the work. I particuarly like the Merton model descriptions for pricing corporate bonds, the options pricing methods because it makes binomial pricing for options really easy to program yourself. This is one book you need in your library and also one you must read too.
I was planning to buy this book for a few years. This is a classical book on Derivatives. A must have for anyone that is interested in learning how derivatives work and how to price them. It provides good reasoning and intuitive ideas on risk-neutral pricing. I tried learning that from other books before but the main ideas are so well explained here that now I can understand what those other books say (concepts like market price of risk and the equivalent martingale result for change of numeraire). Interest rate derivatives are well introduced here and the new chapter on more numerical procedures extends the results from previous chapters to dynamics with stochastic volatility and so on. So, this is a must have and basic reading book for any quant analyst.
