May I add: 

Differentialgleichungen mit Mathematica  by
W. Strampp & V. Ganzha, published by
F. Vieweg & Sohn Verlag, Braunschweig, Germany
ISBN 3-528-06618-0, 1995

It contains a very useful 5th chapter on PDE of the 1st order;
chapter 6 is on PDE of the 2nd order 

Also "Applied Mathematica" by W. Shaw and J. Tigg
(Addison-Wesley, ISBN 0-201-54217-X)
contains some hints:
section 1.6 on PDE of the 1st order even though the solution
is rather incomplete; in fact Needs["calculus`PDESolve`"]
gives the general solution but the application od the Initial
Condition is far from trivial.
sections 5.7.1 is about Diffusion equation

See also Mathematica Technical Report
Guide to Standard M. packages Supplement Version 2.2
again, at pag 18, only the general solution.
