I am trying to self-study string theory, beginning with Ibanez and Uranga (String Theory and Particle Physics). Unfortunately, the book contains no problems, so I'm not sure whether I am fully understanding the material.

Are there any pedagogical string theory problem sets, for a beginner, preferably with solutions, available on the web that would accompany my book? I.e. questions initially covering the quantization and symmetries of the Nambu-Goto and Polyakov actions, the wordsheet etc.

@user26143 thanks, unfortunately that solutions manual doesn't contain the questions themselves, and I don't have the Polchinski book. –  innisfree Nov 20 '13 at 11:49
    
Zwiebach's book A First Course in String Theory has a lot of problems. –  joshphysics Nov 20 '13 at 21:35
