I'm taking Abstract Algebra next semester, and I'm wondering if anyone [TPH, maybe?] can suggest any good books. This will be a two semester sequence for me, where I will learn about Field Theory, Rings, Groups, and all that fun stuff first semester. Then the second semester, I will be learning Galois Theory
I'd appreciate any book suggestions [on field, rings and group theory; or just Galois Theory], for I would like to get ahead in this class!!!
