Best book for Mech Eng to revise/practise mechanics problems?

Hi, I am first year studying mechanical engineering. Need a recommendation for a decent textbook to revise mechanics (more specifically solid mechanics like trusses, shearing bending, forces + moments etc.) It needs to have practice questions in (preferably quite a few, and solutions as well. Thanks for any Help!
I really like J.L. Meriam and L.G. Kraig’s Engineering Mechanics books, I have both the statics and dynamics versions and they’re great.
I also have K.A. Stroud’s engineering mathematics which is arguably the best book for this subject.
You don’t have to get the newest versions. All mine are 7th editions and they’re fine.

Khan academy is also really helpful if you want extra lecture style resources - it’s free.
