I have finally solved all my problems (for the time being) except one. 
It is because the solution is a composite of many of the responses that 
I got here that I am not responding to anyone in particular. Anyway, for 
whoever later on may encounter the same situation, I will desctibe the 
whole thing.

The text is in 24 chapters consisting of


I wanted the flexibility for the instructor either to have the students 
get the whole set of lectures at the start and hand out the sets of 
exercises as s/he went along or have the students get the whole thing, 
lectures and sets of exercises.

The solution is so simple of course that I couln't have thought of it alone:

    (1) One Main file with


    in the preamble. It consists of all the lectures with, after each
    lecture, say,


    after lecture #17.

    (2) Twenty four HomeWork files. For instance HomeWork-17.tex is just:

    MATH 016 HomeWork For Lesson #17

    (3) Twenty four files containing the exercises themselves, For
    instance, ExerciseSet-17.tex is:


Everything works well. For the book not to include the exercises, just 
comment out


in the preamble of the main file.
The only remaining problem is that I keep getting one blank page if 
front of each included "set of exercises". I tried to put


at the top of each ExerciseSet file but nothing happens. It is obviously 
not the correct command but as I said Companion2ed seems more into 
adding space.

In any case, thanks to everyone.
Regards to all and Best Wishes for the New Year, whenever it starts for you.
