    Books Suggestions

    Hi, I didn't where to post this thread so I posted here, I am planning on studying this summer Set theory and Logic and Discrete math. Can someone recommend books for these three topics?It's for self study. If anyone knows books that are clear and sufficient for self study I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

    Had you not included Discrete Mathematics, without a doubt I would suggest Set Theory by Charles Pinter.
    Pinter did his PhD in Paris in the 1960's with some of the leading reformers of mathematics notation.

    If Discrete Mathematics is a must for you then Discrete Mathematics by Richard Johnsonbaugh is a good choice.

    The first is a more in depth study of the basics; the second is a study of more topics but in less depth.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I prefer separate book for each topic anyway so I will take a look at both of them. And for Logic do you have any suggestions by any chance?

    The book by Pinter does a good job on its development of logic.
    If you want an in depth study of logic look to Symbolic Logic by Irrving Copi.
