Although Krotov's problem book is phenomenal in its own right, it has nothing to do with PGRE or graduate physics. This is a collection of problems for physics Olympiads in high school (I remember it from my childhood, I've read Russian edition and worked it out when I was 15 or so). As for website, it can be useful for English-speaking audience (Russian edition for every single book can easily be found on the internet), but, as I said before, the whole series is for high school, not even for undergraduate students... Nevertheless, soviet books such as this one are amazing, I miss them now when there is just a few good ones (in physics and math), that are published every year for school in Ukraine, Russia and other post-soviet countries.
