I actually think that's a good book... at least compared to Discrete and Combinatorial Mathematics by Grimaldi which is what every instructor at my school uses.
Ok so basically im starting a uni course next year in IT, discete mathematics being one of the electives. I am very keen on taking the course, anyway due to me taking a gap year to get the money together for next year im left with like 6 - 7 months to get ahead. I took Math Methods 3 -4 last year and did ok, i didnt have much interest at the time due to having a bad teacher, and i suppose I just had a different mindset at the time (everyone changes).
I might need some revision but if any only a very small amount.
I was wondering what text would be recomended as a >complete< starting point to discrete math. The course Ill be taking uses Discrete Math and its Applications 6th edition by Kenneth H Rosen, however i have heard this is a horrific book that over complicates things. What text would you recommend? keeping in mind ill be learning alone just though the text. Please dont recomend concrete mathemtics or anything complicated.
I was thinking of trying schaums outline of discrete mathematics.
Also I dont really want a massive booklist just one or two books.
Thanks in advance Matt.
