I am learning supersymmetry right now. I am mostly following Bailin and Love. I try to connect all the steps from the book and complete the derivations in order to get comfortable with the calculations but I feel the lack of a problem book with a lot of solved and unsolved problems, something like the Schaum's series which I can use together with Bailin and Love. Do you happen to know any such book that you think would be helpful for me?

Probably not what you're referring to (also I'm not familiar with the texts you mention), but if you're looking for exercises in the supersymmetric method in quantum mechanics (see section 2 of some classic examples are finding the super-partner potentials to the infinite square well and hydrogen, and use the formalism of the supersymmetric method to solve for their spectra and associated eigenstates. – mhodel May 4 '14 at 23:17
Hi, thanks for the response. I browsed through the paper that you suggested. Although it is very interesting, what I am looking for is slightly different. I am searching for something which has solved and unsolved problems on supersymmetric gauge field theories, spontaneous supersymmetry breaking, supergravity and so on. Thanks again. – nomad May 4 '14 at 23:25
Ah I see. That's way beyond me at the moment. I'm a second year undergraduate and I just wrote a research paper for a quantum class I'm taking about the supersymmetric method described in section 2 of that paper. Good luck with your study of field theory! – mhodel May 4 '14 at 23:28
