Subject: need specific problems from a specific textbook

I am trying to help a neighbor's 16 year old. He is very bright, but 
failing HS due to a multitude of reasons. I am trying to function as his 
tutor/mentor. I am not a professional tutor. His Algebra II teacher has 
been kind enough to allow him to retake several tests he miserably failed. 
The first make up test is tomorrow. Of course, he "forgot" his textbook in 
his school locker, to which he does not have access this fine Sunday 
afternoon. I have signed up for hotmath.com to check his work. However, it 
doesn't (or I can't seem to figure how)give the problem, just the 
solution. Does anyone know where I can get the actual problems? I have had 
him call every kid for whom he has a phone number and none of them brought 
home their textbooks, purportedly. I don't want him to think he can weasel 
out of his work so easily with me. I also want to teach him that if he 
applies himself, solutions can be found to problems such as "getting 
around the fact" he forgot his textbook. BTW, he uses Title: Algebra 2: An 
Integrated Approach, Author: Larson, et al Publisher: Heath McDougal
