What are the different methods of factoring polynomials?

Methods of factoring .

Method of common factors
Factorization by regrouping terms
Factorization using identities
Factors of the form ( x + a) ( x + b)
Factor by Splitting







Is this all the factoring methods out there ? Or are there more ?

I am also looking for a book with lots of practice problems .

Please help

I would suggest looking into completing the square to factor quadratic polynomials. Take a look here for information on this method.
