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?

Supergravity by Daniel Z Freedman and Antoine Van Proeyen is quite excellent for illustrating Clifford algebra techniques and calculations in the classical SUSY/SUGRA in general(in the component formalism). The book has several calculations illustrated and plenty of exercises.
Not a problem book, but Supersymmetry: an Introduction with Conceptual and Calculational Details by M\"uller-Kirsten and Wiedemann may be helpful. From the preface:
"The text was compiled with the belief that the majority of potential readers is more interested in actually using or applying supersymrnetry in some model theory than in painstakingly rediscovering the results of others for themselves, It seemed plausible, therefore, to revise various relevant concepts and in particular, to include the proof or verification of almost every formula. In this way the reader can select the problems he wants to tackle himself, compare his solutions with the calculations given here, and thus gain the confidence in his own calculations which he needs for his discussions of supersymmetry in other contexts."
