first post here so sorry if this question is answered somewhere, but I couldn't find it.
I'll start with some background before the question: I've recently completed an undergraduate math degree, with all the standard courses including real analysis from Baby Rudin. Although I'm taking a few years off before graduate school to make some money, I found an inexpensive paperback version of Big Rudin and decided to self-study from it before grad school.
So, on to the main question:
If you've ever conducted self-study from Big Rudin, how did you structure your program, and did you feel as if that method was effective?
For example, did you simply choose to read the chapters and work through the exercises, choose to emulate the syllabus of some existing course, etc.? Also, how did you go about verifying your solutions to the exercises? (Perhaps a solution manual or ProofWiki?)
Any experiences, advice, tips, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
