Math: word problems exercises

Anonymous A

Hey all, Do you know of a link where you can practice math 'word problems'? I have noticed that during my case prep that sometimes I have a difficult time deriving equations from information given in cases.

Any info on the subject e.g. book/site is also appreciated. Many thanks.
