We use the book in a linear fashion, but there are some alternatives to that approach. Click here for information about the Second Editionincluding the appropriate Study Guide. You’ll see things like “It’s obvious the function is one to one” Well of course it is to the teachers, but not for the first time student who needs details explanations.
My teacher was telling me how Abstract Algebra logic is important for computer science majors. They most likely have already seen that material on integers and functions in books like “Mathematical Proofs: Rahel Jaza rated it really liked it Oct 06, After using the book, on more than one occasion he sent us a large number of detailed suggestions on how to improve the presentation.
The author tries to provide specific instances of groups and rings, and at times his explanations accompanying the examples are so verbose that it makes it harder to read the book. Want to Read saving…. Hj marked it as to-read Jan 14, OhNancy added it Jan 10, We have also benefitted over the years from numerous comments from our own students and from a variety of colleagues.
After covering Chapter 5, it is possible to go directly to Chapter 9, which has more ring theory and some applications to number theory.

Alexander King marked it as to-read Apr 30, No trivia or quizzes yet. In m I would first like to point out that this is a slow pace subject.
A number theory thread runs throughout several optional sections, and there is an overview of techniques for computing Galois groups. As a graduate student I had Fraleigh’s “A first course in abstract algebra” which I back then found a bit hard to digest, and now a abstracy years later when reading Beachy’s “Abstract algebra” it is often quite clear except some proofs and abstract concepts and easy to follow. Chapter 5 also depends on Chapter 3, since we make use of facts about groups in the development of ring theory, particularly in Section 5.

You will not understand what the problems are asking you to do so you are dependent on the balir which aren’t very detailed and easy to get lost in.
